Antiquities looted in war returned

More than 200 artifacts were returned to the government of Iraq during a repatriation ceremony Thursday at the Iraqi Cultural Center in Washington. Federal investigations turned up silverware from the Saddam Hussein era, a 4,000- to 5,000-year-old necklace and other cultural treasures that had been taken as mementos by U.S. troops and contractors.
