VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Police say suspicious packages delivered to two Vancouver schools today appear to contain human remains.

There were no details about whether police believe the packages are connected to the Montreal killing of a Chinese student who was murdered and dismembered. Alleged killer Luka Rocco Magnotta is to be extradited from Germany for the killing of Jun Lin.

Police have called a news conference for later Tuesday, but were saying nothing further.

The B.C. Coroner's Service and the Vancouver police's major crime investigators have been called in.

One of Lin's hands, a foot and his head are still missing.

Last week, body parts were mailed to the headquarters of the federal Liberal and Conservative parties.
