UAE vows to assist artefacts trafficking probe

The United Arab Emirates, home to the only foreign branch of the Louvre, has vowed to ensure a thorough investigation into the trafficking of artefacts linked to its parent museum in Paris.

Hundreds of artefacts are believed to have been pillaged from Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries during a wave of protests from 2011, known as the Arab Spring.

Investigators in France suspect the artefacts were then sold on to galleries and museums around the world.
