Greek officials say police have recovered a valuable 17th century painting by Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens, which was stolen a decade ago in Belgium.

Two Greeks have been arrested in the operation when they allegedly tried to sell the work to undercover police agents.

A culture ministry statement says the artwork was stolen in 2001 in Belgium.

Ten years ago, a Rubens artwork named “The Caledonian Boar Hunt” was stolen from the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent, Belgium.
