LONDON (AP) - British police say two men have been arrested regarding the theft of 18 rare and mostly jade Chinese artifacts stolen from Cambridge University’s Fitzwilliam Museum.

Cambridgeshire police said the men were arrested Wednesday morning in London.

The artifacts, including a 14th-century Ming Jade cup, were stolen on the evening of April 13. Police said they were very valuable and of great cultural significance.

The arrests were made after police appealed for help on a television program “Crimewatch” Tuesday evening. Police said the two men are being taken to Cambridgeshire for questioning.
