MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say customs agents at Miami International Airport found two human fetuses in luggage coming from Cuba.

A Miami-Dade police spokesman said Thursday that the fetuses were found Jan. 30 in the luggage of two Cuban-American women returning from Havana.

Police say customs agents spotted one fetus when they X-rayed a clay jar and found the second when they opened the jar. One was male and one was female.

A medical examiner determined both fetuses were about 20 weeks and both had been still born. No foul play was suspected.

No charges were filed.
