Tourists return "cursed stones" to Ayers Rock

Stones taken from Australia’s Ayers Rock have been returned to the desert monolith’s Aboriginal custodians by tourists who believe they are cursed.
The Aboriginal tribe who live near Ayers Rock have appealed for visitors not to take anything from the sacred site
Hundreds of visitors who casually pocketed chunks of the sacred landmark and took them home found they brought nothing but bad luck, including illness, marriage break-ups and even death.
National park rangers receive at least one package a day of what have been called "sorry rocks" pilfered from the landmark, now known by its indigenous name of Uluru.
