In Brief: UN visits P Vihear

A high-level UNESCO

delegation paid a visit to Preah Vihear temple Wednesday, its second

since the Angkor-era temple was listed as a World Heritage site last

July. Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said the delegation of

seven technical experts would spend four days evaluating the area

around the temple and the costs of conserving it. Cambodia has been

preparing other temples - including Sambo Preykub and Banteay Chhmar -

for nomination as UNESCO sites. So far, just two of its 3,000 temples

have been listed as World Heritage sites. Angkor Wat was listed in

1992.
