General News: Stolen Rubens painting recovered in Athens

A stolen Rubens painting, missing since a 2001 museum robbery in Belgium, was recovered on Thursday by Greek police in an Athens seaside suburb.
A 65-year-old former antique store owner and a 40-year woman were arrested after the painting, entitled "The Hung for the Caledonian Wild Boar" (28 X 52 cm) was found in the trunk of their vehicle.
Police said the pair was, by all accounts not involved in the original heist, with the investigation now centred on how the painting by the 17th century Flemish master came into their possession. 
Undercover police officers posed as buyers offering up to six million euros for the painting. A final meeting was agreed to on Thursday for the transaction.
