All Things Considered reports that the US is returning an Egyptian sarcophagus that was confiscated:
A statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the coffin was originally scrutinized for agricultural concerns at Miami’s airport. U.S. Customs and Border Protection and ICE contacted the importer to see if the coffin had been exported legally from Egypt. Neither the importer nor the Spanish gallery that exported the object could show it left Egypt legally.
“Given the absence of a credible provenance, the item was determined to be owned by Egypt through its Cultural Patrimony Laws,” the ICE statement said. “The item was seized as imported stolen property. ICE worked through its attache offices in Egypt and Spain to provide the information that led to the forfeiture of the property.”
