Taiwanese reject China sculptures





Taiwan's main museum has refused to exhibit two Chinese sculptures owned by late French designer Yves St Laurent.

Beijing has demanded the return of the sculptures, and the director of the Taipei National Palace Museum said she could not display looted objects.

China says the two Qing dynasty bronzes were seized illegally in 1860 by invading French and British forces.

The decision comes on the week Taiwan and China hold their first joint exhibition of relics.
