1000-year-old Viking sword returned

KIEV, Ukraine (CNN) — An ancient sword has returned home to Ukraine.

It’s called the “Viking sword” and dates back to the 10th century.

Three years ago, it was confiscated from smugglers on the Russia-Estonia border.

Since then, Ukraine says it has proved the artifact was found on its territory.

After being restored and examined, the sword was presented this week to a local museum.
