Benin art restitution: French President Emmanuel Macron visits the Quai Branly museum

Description

A Paris museum will on Wednesday hand back cultural artefacts that were looted from modern-day Bening during the colonial era, setting a precedent that will pressure other institutions to return stolen works. In a ceremony to be presided over by French President Emmanuel Macron, the Quai Branly museum will hand over to the republic of Benin 26 artefacts that were stolen from the Kingdom of Abomey in 1892. FRANCE 24's Emerald Maxwell reports from Paris.
