Some pieces of Belgium’s Royal Museum for Central Africa’s large collection are to be returned to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), as part of a process to send back illegally obtained treasures from the former Belgian colony.

“In some African countries, like Congo, clearly a number of objects, that we have, have been looted and have been acquired by violence,” the museum director, Guido Gryseels, told Efe. EFE
