The Sacred Vase of Warka, one of Iraq's greatest treasures, has been returned to the National Museum. A vase, dating from 3200 BCE, was returned to Baghdad's National Museum last week. The vase, which was one of the 47 items reported still missing after looters broke into the museum, was voluntarily returned by three men and turned over to museum officials. Other items have been returned and officials hope the trend will continue.
