Quran-11century-LordHarris-CClicenseA 33-year-old Iraqi pianist, Namir Ibrahim Jamil, watched looters in Baghdad ransacking the Museum of Antiquities and loaded up two full vans with precious artifacts.

He lovingly stored them for 11 days until the building was secured for their return.

More of the museum treasures are being recovered now, after Imams in local mosques broadcast appeals to looters for their return, “no questions asked.”
