China on hunt for looted treasure

Breaking News

China is planning to send teams of experts to the United States, Europe and Asia to find looted treasure.

The teams will be looking for precious items stolen from Beijing's former Summer Palace nearly 150 years ago.

Chinese experts believe 1.5 million items could have been taken from the site, which was destroyed by British and French troops.

Over recent years, China has become increasingly active in its efforts to raise the issue of stolen treasures.
