Ethiopia praised the return of valuable artifacts looted by British soldiers more than 150 years ago, after a long campaign for their restitution. Orders have long been placed in Africa for Western countries to return their colonial spoils. Earlier this month, the West African state of Benin received about 30 royal treasures seized during France’s rule more than 130 years ago.
