Ancient Kudurru stone handed back to Iraqi Embassy

The Government has handed back an ancient stone tablet, found at the Heathrow Border in 2012 - dating back to the Babylonian times, and believed to have been looted from the Middle East.

The Kudurru was handed over to the Iraqi Embassy in London, in a ceremony at The British Museum, so that it can be returned to its original site in Southern Iraq.
