    Forensic scientists say they may have found the remnants of some priceless paintings stolen from a museum in the Netherlands last year.

    They found traces of paint in piles of ash recovered from the home of the main suspect's mother in Romania.

    The stolen works include pieces by Matisse, Picasso and Gauguin.
