Greece protests Louvre exhibit of Apollo statue





Greece has asked the Louvre Museum in Paris to not show a disputed 4th century BC statue of Apollo on loan from a US museum, saying it may have been illegally acquired, a culture ministry source said."We do not want this work, attributed to the great sculptor Praxiteles, to be presented at the Louvre because doing so would legitimize" its acquisition by the Cleveland Museum in Ohio, the source told AFP, requesting anonymity.
