Stolen Priceless Artifacts are finally returned

Today (Oct. 9) was a turnig point for the rights of Egyptian Artifacts. Five stolen Egyptian relics were finally returned back to Egypt after more than 10 years. Sometime in the 1980's, 5 relics,chipped out of the wall, were illegally taken from a tomb dating back to the 18th dynasty in Egypt. The priceless artifacts were then sold in various actions in 2003 and 2000. Somehow, through many sales and shippings, these artifacts ended up in the Louvre. After many years, the louvre officials have decided to give the artifacts back to Egypt. Although it took many protests, these relics are going home.
