US returns Saddam Hussein’s stolen antique chessboard

The US government has returned a stolen antique chessboard that once belonged to Saddam Hussein to Iraqi officials.

The ancient chess set, stolen during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, was presented to the government of Iraq at the US Embassy in Baghdad on Saturday.

The artifact was recovered by the FBI according to a statement from the US Embassy in Iraq and turned over to Iraq’s deputy minister of culture for antiquities & heritage affairs, Qais Rasheed.

“The US is committed to helping return stolen Iraqi artifacts,” the statement added.

Further details on the theft and how the artifact came into the possession of US authorities were not given.

The former Iraqi leader was a known chess fan. The president of the World Chess Federation, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, previously described Hussein as a “supporter of chess” who understood its value.
