    A Canadian student who bought an MP3 player on the internet auction site eBay, was sent a handgun instead.

    Brandon Buchan, an English student at the University of Saskatchewan, was sent an unloaded .22-calibre Smith & Wesson gun and a licence by mistake.

    A Canadian customs official said not all parcels coming from the US were X-rayed at the border.

    The package, sent by courier, was labelled as containing an MP3 player, says BBC News Online.

    Mr Buchan told the Star Phoenix newspaper: "I was really shocked to see it was a gun. I'm not a hit man. I was mostly confused about it all. I thought 'How did this end up here?', and I figured it must just be a mistake."
