23 arrested in Chinese smuggling ring

Police in China have arrested 23 individuals, busting up a major relic smuggling ring in the process.

Police said the treasures were stolen and smuggled by gang members from Hubei to traders and collectors across the country.

Among them, eight artifacts are under China’s class-one relic protection. The two most precious items are bronzewares, respectively dating back to Spring and Autumn Period (722-476 BC) and Western Han Dynasty of more than 2,000 years ago.
