Relics of Bamiyan Buddhas on sale

London, April 1

Relics of the 2000-year-old Bamiyan Buddhas, blown up by Afghanistan's Taliban rulers last month, have now been put on sale in Pakistan's frontier town of Peshawar.

At least 10 truckloads of pieces were driven into the tribal areas between Pakistan and Afghanistan last week and dealers are currently being approached, The Sunday Telegraph said. PTI
