Historical heads returned in bag

Three antique statue heads have been turned over to the National Museum after an unidentified man left them outside a radio station, saying he feared legal action. The surrender of the artifacts was done through the good offices of FM 91 traffic radio, Sor Wor Por 91.

On the morning of June 11, the heads, weighing more than 10kg, were found wrapped in newspaper in a bag lying outside the radio station.
