      New German Law Would Make Ease Return of Looted Art to Owners

      The German state Bavaria said Tuesday it was drafting a national law to ease the return of Nazi-looted art to its rightful owners, in the wake of a spectacular discovery late last year, AFP reports.

      The new legislation would specifically eliminate the statute of limitations applied to stolen property, usually 30 years, that some art collectors have used to protect their holdings from claims.
