via CAAI

Thu Mar 10 2011

The artefacts, dating back to the Iron Age, were looted from graves in Southeast Asia, and posted for sale on eBay through an Australian gallery.

An investigation by not-for-profit-group Heritage Watch and the Australian government determined the authenticity of the objects.

The federal government will return them to the Cambodian Ministry for Culture and Fine Arts.
