Genghis Khan burial site just a steppe away?

From the Asahi Shimbun:

"Archaeologists say they may be close to solving one of the world's great mysteries: the burial site of Genghis Khan, the Mongol ruler who was one of the most famous conquerors in history.

A joint team of researchers from Japan and Mongolia announced Monday in Tokyo they had found an ancient mausoleum dedicated to the warrior chieftain who died in 1227. They said the discovery could pinpoint the site of his long-sought-after tomb, which they believe is probably located within 12 kilometers of the mausoleum."
It would seem that Kerry was mistaken, and it wasn't the army of the Genghis Khan in Vietnam afterall . . .
