Good news to art lovers

OSLO, Norway (Reuters) -- "The Scream" and another stolen masterpiece by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch were recovered by police on Thursday, two years after gunmen seized the paintings from an Oslo museum.

"'The Scream' and 'Madonna' are now in police possession," police chief Iver Stensrud told a news conference. "The damage is much less than we could have feared."

About time the paintings were found, although I hope nobody in the NOKAS case will get a break as a result (rumors say somebody involved tipped the cops). A cop was shot and killed in that robbery and I don't think a pair of old paintings should give anybody involved a break.
