Customs officers at Bulgaria's Malko Tarnovo checkpoint have busted the illegal export of 23 antiquities.

The pieces, worth a total of EUR 9,000, were found in a car driven by a British national. The precious items were tucked inside the luggage of the Briton's three female travel companions.

The antique collection included eight Roman, Hellenic and Byzantine coins made of silver and copper, as well as a bronze latch depicting a lion's head, a bronze mace, and ceramic tobacco pipes.
