Concrete base of Ramses II disconnected

"The concrete base of the giant statue of Pharaoh Ramses II, scheduled to be moved to a new location, has been disconnected safely here, Director of Arab Contractors Company Ibrahim Mehleb has said. The company, in charge of a project to move the statue to another location, confirmed that no damage was done to the Pharaoh in the process. The 125-tonne statue will be moved next week to a more serene home near the Great Pyramids."
