Nazi looted art is returned to rightful owner

A man from the US has been reunited with six valuable paintings that were stolen by the Nazis from his grandfather nearly eight decades ago.

The French government returned them at a ceremony on Tuesday, as part of its efforts to give back hundreds of looted artworks that Jewish owners lost during World War II.
