Bust in Cyprus

Authorities in Cyprus raided an antiquities smuggling ring last weekend, recovering dozens of artifacts valued at $15.5 million. Ten Cypriots and five other suspects were arrested by police for illegally possessing and trading in antiquities. This is believed to be the largest case of antiquities theft in Cyprus's history [NYT].
