According to the Iraqi News Agency (state run), a Picasso painting has been discovered in the country after a routine drug raid led to a number of arrests. Authorities say that as part of their ongoing security efforts in the country the painting has managed to turn up.

“A painting belonging to the international painter Picasso was seized in their possession, estimated at millions of dollars,” said Colonel Bilal Sobhi, director of the anti-narcotics media office, in a statement to the INA.

He added: “The drug trade is linked to many crimes, including murder, theft, kidnapping, rape, gang formation, corruption and family disintegration, until it reaches the antiquities trade.”
