Historians in Qatar stop the sale of stolen Afghan manuscripts

Historians in Qatar working for the Himaya programme say they have intervened to stop the sale of nearly a dozen stolen manuscripts from Afghanistan.

The manuscripts were being sold in prestigious auction houses, as their theft was never reported.

The group of experts works with Interpol and the World Customs Organization to preserve Afghanistan’s heritage and history.
