     MANHATTAN (CN) - A 10th century statue that was allegedly looted from a Hindu temple in Cambodia can remain in Sotheby's pending the resolution of forfeiture proceedings, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

     Duryodhana, which translates to "difficult to fight with," is a sandstone statue depicting an antagonist of the Mahabharata, an epic battle described in "The Bhagavad Gita."
