BEIJING (AP):  A Chinese robot probe launched to return lunar rocks to Earth landed on the moon Tuesday,  the government announced.

The Chang'e 5 probe successfully landed on the moon in the pre-selected landing area, the official China News Service said, citing space officials. The one-sentence report gave no more details.

The probe adds to a string of increasingly ambitious missions by a Chinese space program that aims eventually to land a human on the moon.
