US returns stolen Saddam Hussein sword to Iraq

A gold-laden sword looted from ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s personal office in the aftermath of the US invasion of Iraq has been returned to Iraqi authorities. The Homeland Security Department yesterday returned the 43-inch sword with an embellished blade and sheath with gold inlaid Arabic writing to the Iraqi ambassador. The sword was seized by the US government in January 2012 after it was found for sale at an auction in UK.
