Clonaid Claims Embryos Needed for Human Cloning Produced in Korea

tThe controversial international cloning company, Clonaid has
announced they've produced the human embryos needed to clone
babies right here in Korea. The firm which was created by a UFO
cult known as the Raelians said Tuesday they have implanted human
embryos cloned in a South Korean research center into wombs.

Clonaid said these embryos were the ones used to create Eve, the
first-ever cloned human being in December 2002 and also to give
birth to their sixtht cloned baby boy in Australia early this
month. Clonaid declined to offer details of the research center
nor the cloning process. Experts here are skeptical about
Clonaid's latest claims, pointing out there are very few
institutions that are equipped with such high cloning technology.

They are criticizing the group for defaming the reputed work of
Doctor Hwang Woo-suk who recently led a research to extract stem
cells from cloned human embryos for the first time in the world.
The reaction is generally negative around the world with many
scientists doubtfult that Clonaid produced its sixth human clone
since the organization has failed to present DNA evidence to back
their claims. However, the validity issue aside, some researchers
voice caution, saying the incident serves as a reminder of the
present dangers posed by any study leading to the cloning of humans.
