Dutch police have recovered eight valuable paintings, including works by Renoir and Pissaro, 22 years after they were stolen from a gallery. Prosecutors said three suspects have been arrested - a 45-year-old German man who lives in Dubai, his 62-year-old mother and a 66-year-old man. Their identities have not been released. The paintings were stolen from the Noortman gallery in the southern city of Maastricht in 1987. The National Prosecutors Office said in a statement posted on its Web site that police tracked down the works after an attempt was made to sell them to the insurance company that paid out 5 million guilders (about 2.3 million euros) for the paintings after the theft.
