Iraqi museum reopens

After a significant international outcry over "hundreds of thousands" of artifacts being stolen, and the revelation later that the number was closer to 12,000 (3,000 of which have been recovered), the now-famous Iraq Museum in Baghdad reopened for a few hours on Wednesday.

An article from the New York Times goes over some of the specifics, including the main exhibit.

The Nimrud exhibit, which includes treasures of Assyria, has not been on display since 1991, so it was quite an occasion to see the artifacts on display.

A more detailed article from the Associated Press (courtesy of First Coast News) gives details on some of the artifacts in the exhibit.
