PARIS, France - The Louvre museum in Paris will display dozens of artefacts from Uzbekistan that its experts helped restore, including a 2,000-year-old Buddha statue and a fragment of an 8th century Quran, the Uzbek government said on Friday.


A total of 70 restored artefacts will be shown in the Louvre between Nov.23 and March 6, the state-run Culture and Arts Development Foundation said in a statement.


The Quran fragment, it said, has been stored for centuries in the village of Katta Langar and is one of the oldest copies of the Muslim holy book in existence.
