Gandharan art intercepted from smugglers in Pakistan

People are "excavating" Gandharan artifacts in Taliban-controlled areas of Pakistan and planning to truck it overland through Central Asia to Europe. The Pakistani police caught some of it...but broke several pieces trying to get them off the truck. Good news, bad news. The article includes a nice picture of part of the haul. Police claim they are now trying to be more careful handling the stuff.
