Egypt’s greatest / worst antiquites theft. This sarcophagus is one of the treasures from the Malawi Museum at Minya, Egypt, which was looted and vandalised by criminals who used the chaos of the protests this month as a trigger. Over a thousand priceless artefacts disappeared or were destroyed. Egyptian archaeologist, Monica Hanna, bravely faced groups of men who were burning mummies and asked them to stop. (UNESCO Director General)
