The US-based Annenberg Foundation revealed Wednesday that it had bought 24 sacred objects belonging to the Hopi and San Carlos Apache tribes which were sold Monday in a controversial Paris auction.

"Twenty-one of these items will be returned to the Hopi Nation in Arizona, and three artefacts belonging to the San Carlos Apache will be returned to the Apache tribe," the foundation said in a statement, adding their purchase totalled $530,000 (390,000 euros).
