Artefacts looted by British troops from Ethiopia in 1868 have been returned to the Ethiopian embassy in London.

They include an imperial shield, a Bible and crosses, the embassy said.

The Scheherazade Foundation purchased the items through a UK-based auction house and private dealers, before handing them over to the embassy.

The embassy tweeted photos of the artefacts:

The embassy will arrange for them to be returned to Ethiopia.
