Lucy fossil to come to U.S.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) -- One of the world's most famous fossils -- the 3.2 million-year-old Lucy skeleton unearthed in Ethiopia in 1974 -- will go on display abroad for the first time in the United States, officials said Tuesday. The Lucy exhibition at the Ethiopian Natural History Museum in Addis Ababa is a replica. The U.S. tour will start in Houston next September.
