Looters attempt to break into 2,000-year-old graves in Albania

Albanin police are hunting for looters who tried to open a series of graves in the ancient Greek city of Apollonia in Albania.

The raiders, who remained unidentified and are suspected of being part of regional ring that smuggles artifacts, aimed to plunder a group of 2000-year-old graves, local broadcaster Top-Channel TV reported.

The archaeological park of the ancient city of Apollonia is located only eight kilometres outside the city of Fier, and has been the repeated target of thieves.
