Egypt Suspends Archaeological Cooperation with the Louvre

Originally published October 10, 2009 | Zahi Hawass' Blog

Read the rest of this article to learn more. There are also other reports of the same caliber, one at BBC News and another from Agence France Presse.

  1. I phoned the press department of our Belgian Museum, but they did not know anything about this (At least not in Dutch or in English) and promised to email me, which they haven't. Blah.

    (I do wonder which object though, as I do not think they have such an extensive Egypt collection.)
