Albania to Regain Gold

TIRANA () -- France on Thursday cleared the way for Albania to get back $30 million in gold seized by the allies to stop it falling into communist hands at the end of World War II.


French and Albanian officials in Tirana signed an accord Thursday allowing the return of the gold, held at the Bank of England in London under the trusteeship of an Anglo-American-French commission.
