SCA Secretary General Zahi Hawas said 13 websites were advertising Egyptian antiquities for sale at auction this month, while the total for July was 22 websites. SCA's Archaeological Department has collected all brochures of these auction halls and forwarded them to Public Funds Prosecution, said Hawas". See the article for more.
