Hawass appoints new Sec Gen for Supreme Council of Antiquities

This is the sum total of information on the above site, but hopefully more information will come soon if this is accurate. It is about time that the SCA now has a new head, particularly as Hawass as a minister presumably has other responsibilities than the management of the SCA's multiple interests and people.

Egypt's Minister of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, has Mohammad Abdel-Moneim as Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Abdel-Moneim was the Ministry's general supervisor. He was also the chairman of the Central Administration for Lower Egypt and monuments in Sinai monuments. He discovered many excavations along with important archaeological pieces in North Sinai and the East of the Delta.
