More Threats to Egypt's Artifacts

There are more threats to Egypt's archaeological treasures as the situation in Cairo deteriorates. The Egyptian Museum is adjacent to Tahrir Square, the hot spot for the protests- it's the coral colored building you'll see in many news broadcasts.

I've also read reports that the museum might have been mistaken about the two destroyed mummies- the heads might actually have been skulls already separated from their skeletons.

I want this resolved- I love Egypt and it's getting more and more difficult to watch this unfold, both for the people currently living there and for the antiquities I don't want to see destroyed.
