Boston Globe says looting of

Boston Globe says looting of Iraqi museums wasn't as severe as first thought.

They cite a Marine investigation team's report that says the team "has so far recovered 951 artifacts -- many from Iraqis who ostensibly took them for safekeeping -- and have located 39,453 ancient scrolls and manuscripts, as well as a hidden safe house and two bank vaults believed to contain 616 pieces of the Treasure of Nimrud and 6,744 pieces of gold and jewelry." Initial reports placed the number of missing artifacts at 170,000.
