Jordan tries to reclaim Dead Sea Scrolls





Jordan has tried to reclaim the Dead Sea Scrolls from Israel, an official said.

In a complaint made to the United Nations Jordan said that the ancient texts were seized from the Palestinian Museum when Israel captured east Jerusalem in the Six Day War.

“The Government has legal documents that prove Jordan owns the scrolls,” Rafea Harahsheh, of the country’s antiquities department, said.
