Bulgaria busts international antiquities trafficking ring

Written by The Sofia Globe staff on January 30, 2015

Bulgaria has seized more than 2000 ancient and medieval objects during two major operations against an international crime group trafficking in antiquities.

The State Agency for National Security (SANS) announced the two recent operations on January 30, two days after European police agency Europol said that 35 individuals had been arrested and 2289 cultural artefacts seized, in an international operation supported by Europol to prevent the theft and trafficking of European cultural property.
