Officials triumphed in Monday's return of everything from gold earrings to a sacred statue looted in the Iraq war. But they also said that 632 pieces returned last year have gone missing.
Damage sustained in the massive August attack on the Foreign Ministry adds to the museum's challenges. Iraqi officials say a number of key archaeological sites also need urgent international aid for repairs.
The museum that was looted after the US invasion will open for a few hours Monday to highlight recovered pieces.
The jewelry could belong to the treasures of Nimrud, officials say.
