Received 10 February 1999; Accepted 19 July 1999

Presented are preliminary results of an experiment performed at the 1-GeV electron synchrotron of Lebedev Physical Institute giving bremsstrahlung photon beams of the end-point energies of 650 and 850 MeV. Correlated p+n pairs with the opening angle qpN=180 and with the energies Ep+=300 MeV and En=100 MeV arising from the process g+12CN+h(A-1)N+p+n+(A-2) have been observed. They provide an evidence for the existence of the 11hB and 11hC h-mesic nuclei.
