Stolen Egyptian Artifacts turn up in Manhatten

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE - part of Homeland Security) has recently recovered from “a Manhattan auction house” seven artifacts of Egyptian origin that were recordsed in the Arts Loss Register as having previously been stolen from the Bijbels Museum in Amsterdam in July 2007. "The recovery of these artifacts sends a strong message to thieves that the market to sell stolen antiquities in the United States is freezing up." said Peter J. Smith, special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in New York. "ICE is committed to working closely with foreign governments and organizations like the ALR to recover priceless works of art and antiquities so they can be returned to their rightful owners".
