Some disheartening news

Some disappointing news in the latest issue of Science (apparently, at least. I'll have to make my way to the library to read the paper later).

University College London has become embroiled in a dispute over its handling of a large collection of religious artifacts that may have been part of the illicit trade in archaeological relics from Iraq in recent years.

In a field already severely tarnished by the likes of Oded Golan, this type of thing is inexcusable.
