Stolen icon returned to native land after 32 years





An 18th-century icon that was stolen from a Serbian Orthodox monastery 32 years ago has been returned to Belgrade by the Italian authorities.

“We had already lost all hope but thanks to international cooperation to return stolen art objects we have been able to recover this treasure, which will return to its native country,” the Serbian Ambassador Sanda Raskovic-Ivic said during a ceremony in Rome where the statue was handed over.
