HUE CITY, VIETNAM—Two bronze figurines and four ceramic jars have been stolen from the Hoa Khiem palace, part of the tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, which was built in the 1860s. Guards found pliers used by the thieves to gain entrance near a side door. Police think that there must have been at least two perpetrators to carry away the heavy antiquities.
