Armed looters broke in to the Tel El-Dabaa antiquities warehouse on Thursday (31st March), stealing artifacts and breaking several pieces of the stored collection, according to Ahram Online. The warehouse was used to store artifacts found at Tel El-Dabaa's archaelogical sites by Dutch and German excavation missions over the past 30 years.
