A dinosaur skeleton at the centre of an international legal dispute has been seized by US authorities on behalf of Mongolia, the country it is said to come from and which wants it back.

The tyrannosaurus bataar had been sold at auction in New York for over a million dollars.

The Florida-based vendor says he spent a year assembling the skeleton, taking great care of the bones, and denies being a smuggler.
