6.4 mn-yr-old monkey fossils discovered in China

Scientists claim to have found monkey fossils, about 6.4 million years old, in China. A Pennsylvania State University researcher stated they are some of the very oldest fossils of monkeys outside of Africa. The discovery shows monkeys existed in Asia at the same time as apes and are seemingly the ancestors of some of the current monkeys there, researchers said.
