Turkey seeking the return of more than 150,000 objects from Foreign Collections

Turkey is seeking the return of more than 150,000 objects, some exported hundreds of years ago, that are currently in museums and collections in Europe and the United States.
 A lot of items from Turkey have been stolen, now located in museums in the United States, England, Portugal, Denmark, France, Germany and Greece, one of the leading members of the repatriation commission, Serdal Kuyucuoglu, told Al-Jazeera Monday. [...]  In recent months, the Commission's members have visited museums and collections that contain items from Turkey.
