Looted treasures back in Iraq, but don't plan on seeing them

Gold earrings made for an Assyrian queen, a sacred 4,000-year-old statue and 540 other looted pieces of Iraq's ancient history went on display in Iraq on Tuesday in what was billed as a triumph of justice and international cooperation. But not for long. With security an issue, they'll be put in a vault. More than 600 other returned items are missing.
