Twice-stolen Iran artefact returns to Tehran from New York

A rare case of cooperation between the US and Iran enabled the rescue of the artefact from New York.

    At the UN General Assembly last month, Iran and the United States were involved in "a war of words".

    But behind the scenes, there was a rare case of cooperation.

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was able to go bring back an ancient Persian artefact, rescued from a private collection in New York.
