Children swimming in pond find ancient Buddhist statues

A group of children bathing in a pond in Cambodia have found six ancient Buddhist statues which date back 1,000 years.

Sakhon says the statues are believed to be from the ninth to the 12th centuries, with the biggest just over a half-meter (half-yard) tall and weighing about nine kilograms (20 pounds).

She said Friday the statues have been moved to a provincial museum while authorities investigate.

The pond had been dug recently and the statues were found buried in mud close to its banks.
