    4 charged with intent to defraud over "Biblical discoveries"

    It seems, that a sophisticated forgery ring has been discovered in Israel.

    Four men have been charged with the faking of some of the most important biblical discoveries in recent years. The artefacts in question include an ossuary which was believed to contain the bones of James, the brother of Jesus, and a tablet with a written inscription by a Jewish king in the ninth century before Christ.
    Officials of the Israel Antiquities Authority have said that these forgeries call into question every "find" discovered, in a non authorised excavation.
