ICE returns looted cultural artifacts to Islamic Republic of Afghanistan

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will repatriate gold artifacts and an ancient vase to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The antiquities were seized in Newark, N.J., after ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York special agents discovered that the objects were destined for a New York business suspected of dealing in looted cultural property.
