More on New 7 Wonders dispute

I bet this isn't the sort of publicity that the New 7 Wonders people had in mind when they started this project:
"Egypt officially protested against a contest sponsored by a Swiss Tourist Company to choose the new wonders of the world. The Giza Pyramids in Egypt were ruled out from the contest. Dr. Zahi Hawwas, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities said that he sent an official address to the UNESCO Director General, the Chairman of the World Heritage Committee, and the UNESCO Culture Director General asking them to intervene and immediately stop this farce."
