    PHNOM PENH: Cambodian police on Sunday said they were searching for a golden urn said to contain relics of the Buddha –including hair, teeth and bones – after it was stolen from a shrine. The theft of several small statues and the urn from a mountain shrine in the former royal city of Udong was discovered on Tuesday, according to national police spokesman Kirt Chantharith. The relics are believed to have been brought from Sri Lanka to Cambodia in the 1950s to mark the 2,500th anniversary of Buddha’s birth.
