Mural returned by Germany

"Germany is to hand over sections of an ancient Egyptian mural to an Egyptian delegation Monday. 'The delegation from the Ministry of Culture and the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) will receive five sections of a mural painting stolen from the tomb of Seti I in the Valley of Kings near Luxor,' said Minister of Culture Farouk Hosni said yesterday 25/6/2006. SCA Secretary General Zahi Hawass hailed the move by Egyptology Institute affiliated to the University of Tuebingen. The section of the mural will be restored to their original place in the tomb, Hawass added."
