Egypt has identified three pieces of smuggled antiquity and will get them back form a museum in Spain, Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) Zahi Hawwas said Thursday.

The SCA will send a delegation to the Spanish city of Barcelona on Friday to have the antiquities back, Hawwas said in a press release.

The three pieces, including a man' basalt statue, a fragmentary granite statue of an Egyptian noble and part of a color-decorated wall of the tomb of Ken-Amun, date back to the New Kingdom of ancient Egypt, said Hawwas.

In recent years, Egypt has exerted unremitting efforts and managed to retrieve more than 5,200 stolen antiquities from foreign countries.
