Colombian police find stolen Goya





A valuable engraving by the Spanish master Francisco de Goya has been found a month after it was stolen from an exhibition, Colombian police say.

The work, entitled Sad Premonitions, was found in a Bogota hotel room after a tip-off, investigators said.

The engraving is part of Goya's "Disaster of War" series which he created between 1810 and 1820.

It was on loan from Spain and reportedly insured for 80,000 euros($108,000; £64,000).

It was stolen on 11 September from a gallery in Bogota.

The exhibition's organisers said the work would go back on display in the Colombian capital, along with dozens of other Goya prints.
