Representatives from the Chilean territory of Easter Island are in London seeking the return of a statue brought to the United Kingdom 150 years ago.
The carving, which has a name meaning “the one that brings calm”, was taken from the Pacific island in 1868 by a British explorer.

Al Jazeera’s Nadim Baba reports from London.
