Republic of Yemen becomes a State Party to 1970 UNESCO Convention

Republic of Yemen became a State Party to the main international treaty to combat cultural racketeering, the 1970 UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transport of Ownership of Cultural Property. Deborah Lehr:
"Now that #Yemen has taken the important step of [becoming a state party] of the UNESCO Convention, we call on the international community to do its part to help protect the country’s heritage for future generations”.
Especially Israel. Look at the number of Yemeni artefacts on eBay being sold from Israel.

Ensuring artefacts have a documented provenance before the date of the UNESCO Convention can be difficult already. I think 1070 might be pushing it a bit. ;)
