BAGHDAD, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) -- A handover ceremony was held on Tuesday at the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad to receive some 17,000 looted artifacts returned from the United States.

This marked the return of the largest amount of smuggled Iraqi antiquities, many of which have been looted and smuggled out of the country during the long period of chaos, violence and disruption of public order caused by the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
