Italy recovers stolen Banksy art honoring Bataclan victims

L'AQUILA, Italy — Italian authorities have recovered a stolen artwork by the British artist Banksy that was painted as a tribute to the victims of the 2015 terror attacks at the Bataclan music hall in Paris.

Authorities in the central city of L’Aquila displayed the recovered artwork Thursday at a news conference.

French officials last year announced the theft of the piece, a black image appearing to depict a person mourning that was painted on one of the Bataclan’s emergency exit doors.

Ninety people were killed at the Bataclan on Nov. 13, 2015, when Islamic extremists invaded the music hall, one of several targets that night in which a total of 130 people died.
