LONDON (AFP):

British police said Tuesday they have recovered a rare Stradivarius violin worth £1.2 million ($1.8 million, 1.4 million euros) that was stolen from its owner in a London railway cafe in 2010. Thieves took the antique instrument, which was made in 1696, and two bows from Korean-born violinist Min-Jin Kym as she ate at London’s Euston station. It was recovered from a property in central England last week, police said, without giving further details.
