More re UNESCO removal of sites from World Heritage List

The Egypt State Information Service website has posted an item about the suggestion that UNESCO is withdrawing its support for Egyptian heritage sites: "Culture Minister Farouq Hosni denied on Thursday there were threats by UNESCO to lift Thebes and Memphis off the World Heritage List. In statements to MENA, the minister ruled out such threats published by Egyptian newspapers. The two areas are considered world heritage reserves in accordance with the Egyptian Prime Minister's decisions, said the minister."
