 Albanian police have arrested two men with what they say are  230 archaeological artifacts from ancient Apollonia in their possession.
A statement Sunday said pots, vases, parts of ceramic bottles and other artifacts were found at the arrested men's houses in Radostine, a village 120 kilometers (75 miles) south of the capital, Tirana. It says the artifacts were "dug up at Apollonia national park." Police still are seeking two more people. All are charged with smuggling and theft of artworks of national importance, a felony that carries up to 15 years in jail.
