Serbia's interior minister has said that two Picasso paintings owned by a German museum and stolen from a Swiss exhibition have been found in Belgrade.

According to AP, Ivica Dacic gave no information on the location of the paintings or possible suspects in the theft.

Local media reports said no arrests have been made.

The two paintings, "Tete de Cheval" ("Head of Horse") from 1962 and "Verre et Pichet" ("Glass and Pitcher") from 1944, were stolen from an exhibition in Switzerland in early 2008.

Serbian police say the two works are worth "several millions" of dollars.

The case is still under investigation.
