Nearly 100 Syrian artifacts stolen by the Islamic State group (ISIS) have been smuggled into Britain and sold to finance the terror group's activities, art crime and archaeology experts say.

Looted items allegedly being sold in London include Roman pottery and glass worth hundreds of thousands of dollars as well as gold and silver Byzantine coins, according to British media reports.
