Ancient Artifacts Smuggled Illegally Into US Are Headed Back To Iraq


Several thousand ancient artifacts are being returned to Iraq after they were illegally smuggled to the US retailer Hobby Lobby. Last year US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Justice Department brought a civil action against Hobby Lobby, saying it had received thousands of falsely labeled Iraqi artifacts from a United Arab Emirates-based supplier. In July, Hobby Lobby agreed to forfeit the artifacts and pay a $3 million fine. Last year, Hobby Lobby's president opened a Bible museum in Washington said to contain some 40,000 biblical artifacts. https://ift.tt/2HMvRiv http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
