2nd Arrest in Art Case

NEW YORK -- An Azeri woman charged with conspiracy became the second person accused of trying to sell $10 million in art stolen from Germany at the end of World War II.


Natavan Aleskerova, 43, was charged Tuesday in New York with conspiracy in an indictment unsealed after her arrest Monday night for her alleged role in the sale of Old Masters, including two drawings by Albrecht D--rer and one by Rembrandt.


Last month, Masatsugu Koga, 60, was charged in the case. He told authorities he tried to sell the drawings to finance a kidney transplant.
