Battle Over Russian Jewels.

N-P-R's Dean Olsher reports on the ongoing battle between Russia and an American foundation over a traveling exhibition of Czarist treasures. The jewels, which are scheduled to be shown in Houston this week, are in Washington, D.C. while an American diplomat mediates the dispute. The Americans claim they have legal control over the exhibit, but the Russians insist that the jewels return to Moscow.
