Repatriation: Egypt and others

Monsters and Critics (Shabtai Gold)

Egypt's antiquities chief announced plans on Wednesday for a conference to help coordinate the strategy of African and Asian countries who had artifacts 'stolen' from them.

'At the end of March we will hold a conference to meet with others who suffered like us from stolen artifacts and to discuss how to help all of us in efforts to return the stolen artifacts,' said Zahi Hawass, the secretary general of Egypt's Supreme Council for Antiquities.

Never a mention of the millions of dollars spent by western museums to fund projects and programs in Egypt and elsewhere just - give us everything you have and "Oh yes", keep that money coming.
