They Can Run But They Can't Hide


Greek police recovered a 17th century painting by Flemish master Pieter Paul Rubens stolen from a museum in Belgium a decade ago, authorities said on Thursday, September 1, 2011. The artwork, dating from 1618 and stolen in 2001, was a particularly important painting snatched from the Fine Arts Museum in Ghent by three masked robbers.


The Greek ministry and police said a second raid also conducted Thursday led to the arrest of six Greeks in conjunction with stolen antiquities: three prehistoric bronze items, a metal seal and a manuscript with Arabic script.
