These images taken in March 2006 show the Marketplace in Leptis Magna, where a recent theft had appeared to have taken place with some of the marble bases, depicting dolphins and griffins, that held the market stalls, appear to have been ripped out of the ground and stolen. The tyremarks of the getaway veicle are nearby. Despite being a UNESCO world heritage site - one of five in Libya - the preservation and security of such unique heritage must be a concern.
