Cambodia demands return of stolen relics

Seven missing statues looted from remote temples during civil war in the 1970s traced to US museums and galleries.

    An auction house in the US state of New York has agreed to return an ancient statue that was looted from a remote Cambodian temple in the 1970s.

    The statue is among seven missing statues that have been traced to the United States.

    Cambodia says it wants all of the statues returned to be displayed together at the country’s national museum.
