Namibian tribespeople welcome return of skulls from Germany

Namibians turned out at Windhoek airport Tuesday to welcome the return of the skulls of twenty ancestors who were taken by German forces for racist experiments more than a century ago.

Prime Minister Nahas Angula said that he "accepts these mortal remains as a symbolic closure of a tragic chapter," the AP reported.
