    The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam says anti-Mafia police in Naples, Italy, have recovered two Van Gogh paintings stolen in 2002.

    The museum said in a statement on its website Friday the paintings are in "relatively good condition." It said the two paintings are the 1882 work "Seascape at Scheveningen" and a later work, "Congregation leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen."

    Police in Naples said the paintings, of "priceless value," were discovered during a raid as part of a crackdown against a Naples-based Camorra crime clan. Naples prosecutors say more details will be given later at a news conference in the southern Italian city.
