Hatshepsut visits three US states

"An exhibition for Egyptian artifacts will be staged in three American states as of mid-October for three months under the title Hatshepsut the Queen and Pharaoh. Minister of Culture Farouq Hosni said Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif agreed to the participation in the exhibition, the third for the Egyptian antiquities in the United States, after the success of the two last exhibitions. Dr. Zahi Hawwas, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said Egypt would harvest 150,000 dollars for its participation in the exhibition with five pieces from Hatshepsut era."
