'Cave of the Skulls' Robbers Get Prison Term in Israel

A band of antiquities thieves were sentenced to 18 months in prison after being caught red-handed looting an ancient cave in Israel.

The six thieves were caught plundering the 2,000-year-old archaeological site known as the "Cave of the Skulls." In the process, they destroyed some of the cliffside where the cave was located.
