Germany starts identifying Munich art found online

Bowing to demands from Jewish groups and art experts, the German government made public details of painting in a recovered trove of some 1,400 pieces of art, many of which may have been stolen by the Nazis, and said it would put together a task force to speed identification.


The German government said in a written statement that about 590 of the pieces could have been stolen by the Nazis. In a surprise move, it quickly featured some 25 of those works on the website and said that it would be regularly updated. (AP)
