Cairo Museum basement to be opened to visitors

"The basement of the Egyptian Museum will be opened to visitors. Zahi Hawass, head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, declared that a contract has been signed with a state-owned company to insure and reorganize the Egyptian Museum’s basement before making it accessible to visitors. The decision comes after several items from the basement storage area have been 'lost' or stolen in the past year, to the embarrassment of those responsible".
This is the complete bulletin on the Cairo Magazine website.
