DM: Egyptian looters destroy 2,000-year-old mummies in bid to steal King Tut's treasures

Quote
The army was on guard at Egypt’s most popular tourist sites last night after two 2,000-year-old mummies in the country’s national museum were destroyed by looters attempting to steal the treasures of King Tutankhamun.

Soldiers were positioned at the Pyramids and Cairo’s Egyptian Museum – the holding place for Tutankhamun’s priceless golden mask and other artifacts – on the fifth day of anti-government demonstrations in the country’s capital.
Quote
Nine men broke into the Egyptian Museum in the early hours of yesterday, taking advantage of damage caused to the building’s security by a fire in the neighbouring headquarters of the ruling National Democratic Party.

They were caught by police and a crowd of civilians while carrying out the skulls of two mummies and two statues estimated to be more than 2,000 years old.

One statue, believed to be of Tutankhamun, was broken into two pieces by the thieves, although officials said they hoped to be able to repair it.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO sob sob sob sob

My heart sunk right now! I'm a huge fan o Egyptian history. My biggest dream was to visit Egypt and I'm fortunate to have do it already. I've seen those mummies, those statues, those treasures... sob Please do not destroy some of the Worlds most precious artifacts...

I've heard on TV that after the attack there were unarmed civilians forming a human shield around the museum. Just WOW!!!  worship worship

In life nothing happens by accident. we must remember that there are no good that lasts forever. And evil that never ends. God works in mysterious ways. So I just have to accept what happens because we do not know what we gain by things go this way. Not always what initially seems an award is the. This happens when we fall in love, when we found out a new job when a friend disappears or when someone leaves for ever.

Hihi  tehe this reminds me.
The sister of one of my co-workers has just gone to the travel agency to book a trip to...Egypt!
My college went nuts, he was jelling at her on the phone during lunch saying things like "Are you insane! Do you wanna get killed! This might turn into a real warzone.."
You know she booked after the trouble started over there, thinking that the price might collapse, but....it didn't! it's still rather expensive: one week all in for 1500€ p/p! 
Tongue dumba$$! hihi!

How stupid. No one knows WHEN the problems will end and who knows WHAT the solution will be. I'm devastated to hear that the Muzzies are destroying thousands of years of antiquities. I supppose that if the Muzzies get in charge, the pyramids and sphinx will be next.
