Dr. Zahi Hawas, Chairman of the Supreme Council for Antiquities has received lately a letter from the United States saying the FBI has discovered the secret behind disappearance of 90 antiquities from Cairo University antiquities storehouse 12 years ago.

According to the FBI, the antiquities have been smuggled by an international gang.
