Looting of Dura Europos Museum

There are some upsetting photos of the vandalising and looting of the small museum at Dura Europos on Facebook . This happened back on the 7th or 8th July 2012, and the vandals appear to have been local residents. They robbed also the dig house of the archaeological mission, even taking the window frames. It is not clear how many antiquities were removed.
Hat tip to PhDiva.
