France has said it will hand back seven old master paintings that hang in state galleries taken from two Jewish families during World War II.

The oil works were destined to be displayed in a gallery Adolf Hitler had planned. The paintings were by Alessandro Longhi, Sebastiano Ricci, Gaspare Diziani, Salavator Francesco Fontebasso, Gaetano Gandolfi, Francois-Charles Palko and Pieter Jansz van Asch. (AP)
