In Brief: Thailand delays artefacts' return


return of seven Angkorian artefacts from Thailand has been delayed by

unrest in Bangkok, Culture Ministry Secretary of State Chuch Phoeun

said Monday. The artefacts, which were seized by Thai authorities after

being smuggled across the border in 2000, were to be repatriated during

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva's aborted visit to Cambodia last

week. "We hope that the Thai government ... will honor our agreement to

return the artefacts," Chuch Phoeun said.
