US Museum Returns Long Lost Italian Treasures

Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts returned 13 ancient Italian artifacts to their rightful country after seeing evidence that the items had been dug up illegally and smuggled out of Italy. MFA director Malcolm Rogers said he was proud to be "doing the decent thing.” With thanks, Italy will loan other art treasures to Boston. (AP w/ photo at Wash Post)
