The preserved bodies of dead babies - some with umbilical cords still attached - were found in a house of horrors in Japan.

Termite exterminators working on a house renovation in Tokyo uncovered the bodies of several babies preserved in bottles, Kyodo news agency said on Monday.

Three or four such bottles were found beneath the floor of a house abandoned for the past three years.

The house, where an obstetrician had once lived, was being renovated by a recent purchaser.

The bodies appeared to have been preserved in a substance resembling formalin, Kyodo said, adding that police were investigating further.

Police declined to confirm the report.
