An archaeological committee from the ministry of state for antiquities (MSA) embarked today on an inspection tour of the collection of the faculty of archaeology museum, Cairo University, which was robbed a month ago.
Zahi Hawass, minister of state of the MSA told Ahram Online that the tour was granted upon the request of the prosecutor in charge of investigations who attempts to pinpoint all of the losses.
The committee will also inventory the museum’s collection and compare it with artefacts registered in the faculty’s documents. A detailed and final report will be submitted to the prosecutor upon completion of the committee’s mission.
