Iraq, Suspected Antiquities Smuggler Arrests

Quote from: Earth Times, 29 Apr 2010

"Iraqi police on Thursday said soldiers have arrested 18 people suspected of being part of an antiquities-smuggling gang near the Syrian border. Police told the German Press Agency dpa that the men were charged with smuggling ancient Iraqi artifacts from the nearby city of Mosul to Syria and to European countries. They said an investigation was underway to uncover the rest of the network that allegedly supplied them with stolen artifacts of Iraq's ancient history".
