Austria 'may return looted art'





More than 6,000 artworks looted by the Nazis during World War II should be returned to their rightful owners, an Austrian panel has recommended.
Culture Minister Elisabeth Gehrer said a total of 6,292 works were earmarked for return to their rightful owners or heirs - most of whom were Jewish.

Austria has been returning works to their rightful owners under the 1998 culture property restitution law.
