Alien hoax leads to farmer's arrest in China

Report & Video by Rob Gillett

A Chinese farmer who claimed to have an alien stored in his freezer has been questioned by police after admitting it was a hoax.

The man, known only as Li, posted on a blog that he confronted five aliens and one of them was killed by an electric fence he had set up to catch wild rabbits.

After reporting the 'alien' to police, Li was later interrogated and eventually admitted it was a hoax, saying: "It is still disputed whether or not UFOs and aliens exist but enthusiasts believe they do.

"We want to expand our group and make more people believe in aliens."
