Van Gogh Work Recovered in Egypt


Egypt's culture minister says police have recovered the Vincent van Gogh painting that was stolen from a Cairo museum earlier Saturday.

Farouk Hosni said security officials at the Cairo airport have arrested two Italian nationals who were trying to leave the country with the painting.

The painting by the Dutch artist is valued at about $50 million. It goes by two titles, Poppy Flowers and Vase with Flowers.
