(MENAFN - Arab News) Seven American citizens have returned a number of valuable Saudi artifacts, which they possessed for decades. They found the antiques while living in the Kingdom with their parents who were Aramco employees.

Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities, honored the US citizens during the opening of "Saudi Archeological Masterpieces" exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum recently.

"These Americans have returned boxes containing Saudi artifacts that cannot be valued in prices. They found them in desert while they were children," said Janet Smith, wife of US Ambassador James Smith.

Barbara Dennis Martin from California, who took the initiative to return the artifacts, and was among those honored by the prince in Washington, said she was born in Saudi Arabia and lived there until she was 20. "Saudi Arabia is my second home," she added.
