Germany returns looted artifacts to Afghanistan

This week Germany returned some ancient artifacts that were looted from Afghanistan’s National Museum during their civil war.

“This is a masterpiece … I am optimistic that in the future we will get the other artefacts back,” said Omara Khan Massoudi, the director of Afghanistan’s National Museum, which housed the sculpture before it was stolen.

Afghanistan’s embassy in Berlin has been investigating who owned the sculpture since it appeared in Munich a year ago. It was flown to Kabul earlier this week.
