For decades, ancient Iraqi ivory and other art has languished in Iraq's poorly kept storage facilities, gathering mold. But a new initiative funded by the federal government aims to restore Iraq's antique and contemporary art stores and establish a state-of-the-art museum there. Through the program, called the Iraq Cultural Heritage Project, the Walters Art Museum is teaming up with the Winterthur Museum and Country Estate and the University of Delaware to train Iraqi professionals in conservation of that country's cultural heritage.

Nigerian militants call for cease-fire LAGOS, Nigeria -- The main militant group responsible for attacks on foreign oil installations in Nigeria's lawless south announced a one-month cease-fire yesterday, giving the new president a chance to resolve the crisis that has helped cause global crude prices to spike.
