Spanish nuns accused of thieving
by UPI

MADRID - An order of Spanish nuns has been accused of stealing priceless religious icons when they moved from their previous convent.

The wooden icons, dating as far back as the 16th century, were discovered missing after the order of Carmelite nuns moved from their long-time home six months ago, Britain's Independent newspaper reported Wednesday.

"We have documents from as far back as 1728 that show that they (the icons)have been here much longer than the nuns, who arrived in 1881." said Monsignor Julian Lopez, the Bishop of Leon.
