Share Print Font: +-SKOPJE, Macedonia undefined A Macedonian police spokesman says authorities have seized parts of a bronze burial chariot dating from the second century A.D. as part of an operation to recover stolen antiquities.

"The found objects are only part of a ceremonial Roman period chariot. ... It is believed that the other parts have been sold on the antiquities black market outside the country," police spokesman Ivo Kotevski told The Associated Press on Sunday.
