Four more artefacts are back in the Egyptian museum

Tourism and antiquities police have succeeded in retrieving four ancient Egyptian artefacts, two of which were reported missing from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir.

The criminals were caught ‘red-handed’, according to press reports.

Zahi Hawass, minister of state for antiquities affairs, assigned an archaeological committee headed by the Egyptian Museum Director, Tarek El-Awadi, to check on the authenticity of such pieces and whether they belong to the Egyptian museum.

Hawass told Ahram Online that the four bronze statutes date to the Late Period.
