Police in central China's Hubei Province have busted a relic smuggling ring, recovering about 200 ancient artifacts from the black market.
Eight of the artifacts are under China's class-one relic protection. The two most precious items are bronzewares, respectively dating back to Spring and Autumn Period and Western Han Dynasty, 2,000-3,000 years ago.
Police said the treasures were stolen and smuggled by gang members from Hubei to traders and collectors across the country.
Three leaders and 20 accomplices of the smuggling ring have been arrested.
