NL Hands Over Crown to Ethiopia.Ofc of PM

The Netherlands has handed over an 18th century crown, a cross and other artifacts looted from an Ethiopian Orthodox church in 1993. The artifacts were discovered in Rotterdam last October in the possession of a Dutch national born in Ethiopia, who said a friend gave him the items for safekeeping, but once he realized what they were he wanted them returned to Ethiopia. The crown will be on display for a few days in Addis Ababa, the capital, then will be returned to Holy Trinity Church in Cheleqot. (Office of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands)
