Thieves in UK steal 1934 Nobel Peace Prize
London: Police in northern England say thieves have stolen a gold Nobel Peace Prize awarded in the 1930s.
Northumbria Police say burglars broke into the cellar of the Newcastle Lord Mayor`s house overnight between April 1 and April 2 and stole "a number" of very uncommon items valued at around 150,000 pounds (USD 226,700).
Police say the thieves made off with a large amount of antique silverware in addition to the Nobel, which was awarded in 1934 to former foreign secretary Arthur Henderson for his work on international disarmament.
They appealed for help tracking down the items today, saying the stolen prize is "extremely rare, recognizable and historically important."
