Neanderthals interbred for longer with East Asian humans, DNA reveals
Scientists say Neanderthals and humans may have interbred multiple times
People in East Asia carry 15 to 30% more Neanderthal DNA than Europeans
They say Europeans appear to have interbred on just one occasion
But the ancestors of East Asians may have interbred for a second time
It suggests Neanderthals spread far further east than originally thought
Their remains are concentrated in Europe and as far east as central Asia
Experts say Neanderthals in the East may have outlived those in Europe
