Al Jazeera, 05 Dec 2021
A centuries-old sculpture of two Hindu gods has been reinstalled in Kathmandu nearly 40 years after it was stolen.
Worshippers in Nepal have held a ceremony to welcome the idol's return.
The statue of two Hindu gods had been in a US museum, but an investigation by the FBI has resulted in its return on Saturday.
