Nog nooit dat befaamde museum bezocht , alhoewel ik al een aantal malen overnachtte in El-Minya,
zelfs eenmaal gedwongen na een zwaar bootongeluk bij de oversteek naar Beni Hassan in de jaren 80.
Zo befaamd is het nu ook weer niet denk ik, ondanks de vele en interessante voorwerpen. Ik weet niet hoe gebruikelijk dit bezocht werd door de grote touroperators, maar in kleinere groepen wel dacht ik.

More than 1,000 pieces stolen as gangs burn mummies, destroy sculptures
http://www.ottawacitizen.com/technology ... story.html
Among the stolen antiquities was a statue of the daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten, who ruled during the 18th dynasty. Archaeologist Monica Hanna described it as a "masterpiece."
...
Under the threat of sniper fire on Saturday, Hanna and a local security official were able to salvage five ancient Egyptian sarcophagi, two mummies and several dozen other items left behind by the thieves.
When Hanna asked a group of teenagers wielding guns to stop destroying the artifacts that remained, they said they were getting back at the government for killing people in Cairo, she said.
"I told them that this is property of the Egyptian people and you are destroying it," she said in an interview Monday. "They were apparently upset with me because I am not veiled."
After managing to chase them away, a group of men began opening fire to try to force her and the security official to leave. She said the men were apparently also in charge of the boys, who had burned one mummy completely and partially burned another.
The two were able to salvage some 40 artifacts and thousands of broken pieces that Hanna said will take archaeologists years to put back together.

Minister of State of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim told Ahram Online that Malawi residents responded to the call launched by the ministry asking them to hand over any of the MNM artefacts to the museum’s curator without risk of legal measures being taken against anyone.
He also promised to reward the person who recovered both statuettes with an amount of money for his honesty and cooperation with the ministry in helping retrieve artefacts crucial to Egypt’s heritage”

Malawi National Museum Looting Condemned By Unesco Amid Fears Egypt's Cultural Heritage Is In Danger

http://www.ibtimes.com/malawi-national- ... er-1391295
All missing artifacts from Malawi (Mallawi), about 300 kilometers (190 miles) south of Cairo, will be placed on Unesco’s red list in an attempt to stop them from being illegally smuggled and sold on the international antiquities market once the Museums Department at the Ministry of State of Antiques finishes its investigation.
...
Curators sent about three dozen artifacts that remained at the museum Saturday for restoration, according to Egypt’s Heritage Task Force, including five painted sarcophagi, two mummies and a papyrus handwritten in Demotic.
“The objects are safely now in al-Ashmounein magazine because we could not leave them in the mayhem of thugs in the city center of Malawi,” the group, which uses social media to raise awareness, said on its Facebook page Monday. “The police have been the heroes of the day, because they showed up on their own personal responsibility.”

...
Egypt’s Heritage Task Force reported that looters also attempted to forcefully break into the archaeological museum of el-Bahnassah in Beni Mazar over the weekend, but were dispersed.

Egyptian archaeologists demand countries mind their own business

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/79167.aspx

The Egyptian Archaeologists' Syndicate calls on the Ministry of State of Antiquities (MSA) to cut all ties with foreign – and especially American - archaeological missions in response to international reaction towards the current political events in Egypt.

The Syndicate's statement came hours after a French-called UN council meeting started to discuss Egypt' interim government forcible removal of Brotherhood and their allies from their weeks-long sit-ins demanding deposed president Mohamed Morsi be reinstated; as well as a condemnation by US President Barak Obama of "the steps that have been taken by Egypt's interim government and security forces...We deplore violence against civilians."

The Brotherhood supporters have replied by attacking government buildings, police and fire stations and a reported 52 churches.

The Syndicate wants to see the MSA take immediate, thorough steps to cut all ties, even including prohibiting researchers and students to enter Egyptian museums and archaeological sites, Archaeologists Syndicate Coordinator Salah El-Hadi announces in a press release sent around 11pm.

Foreign archaeological and cultural institutes - again, emphasising American institutions, with the American Research Centre in Egypt (ARCE) and the Chicago House mentioned by name - should be cut off because of their country’s support of "terrorism," i.e. the Brotherhood's recent actions.

This prohibition, asserts El-Hadi, "would continue until those foreign cultural and archaeological institutes in Egypt pronounce their official rejection of their countries' policy of intervention in Egypt’s internal affairs."

"We are not quite reassured of our heritage being in the hands of our enemies," El-Hadi says, adding: "If the MSA will not accept and follow-through with our demands, archaeologists will implement the prohibition [ourselves] and will work towards cutting any cooperation with them."

The Muslim Brotherhood have been protesting for weeks against what they call a " coup" against Mohamed Morsi, who the military deposed from presidency after mass protests calling for early presidential elections.

Antiquities Police recovers Ancient Egyptian artefacts stolen from the Mit-Rahina archaeological site in 2011

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/80045.aspx
While on routine inspection at Mit-Rahina, the Tourism and Antiquities Police uncovered on Tuesday a plastic bag concealing Ancient Egyptian artefacts. The bag was found half-buried in the botanical area behind the Hathor Temple archaeological site ...
Minister of State for Antiquities (MSA) Mohamed Ibrahim told Ahram Online that the bag contains seven objects, three of which were reported missing from the Mit-Rahina gallery during the violence that erupted in the aftermath of the January 2011 Revolution. The other four items, he said, resulted from illegal excavation in the site.
Adel Hussein, head of the MSA's Ancient Egyptian Archaeological Section, explains that the three previously missing objects include a partly-damaged clay plate, a red clay pot and an alabaster cylindrical pot with a round base.

Prosecutor-general investigates theft of hundreds of objects from galleries in Mit Rahina – known in Ancient Egypt as Memphis
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/81408.aspx
The story began last week when inspectors at Mit Rahina found the ceilings of two galleries at the site had been broken.
A comprehensive inventory of both galleries by an archaeological committee found a large number of missing artefacts.
The Ministry of State for Antiquities (MSA) has not reported the exact number of missing artefacts. It has only announced that a legal investigation will conducted and the remaining objects will be moved to a secured gallery.
But according an MSA archaeologist who required anonymity, 261 artefacts were stolen. He also suggested the thief was “probably” an archaeologist with access to the MSA, because papers concerning the missing objects had been removed from the site's files.
He went on to say that according to a report by the archaeological committee, doors, ceilings and the glass of some showcases in the gallery had been broken.

Malawi antiquities thief caught red-handed in Giza

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/82399.aspx

Egypt's Tourism and Antiquities Police caught an antiquities thief red-handed on Tuesday as he attempted to sell a collection of 13 ancient Egyptian and Greco-Roman objects in Giza.
...
Antiquities minister Mohamed Ibrahim told Ahram Online that this is the first Malawi Museum thief to be caught in the act, indicating that the police are closely following the case.

Ibrahim hopes that the other accomplices to this crime will soon be caught, and that the missing artifacts are recovered. The antiquities ministry has already retrieved some 457 of the 1049 objects reported stolen from the museum, Ibrahim added.

The recovered objects include 25 gold coins, a collection of 125 statues carved from different materials, and a large collection of papyri, pots, and pans.

Exhibition of restored ancient artifacts, looted or damaged in 2011 uprising, opens Monday in Cairo
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/82940.aspx

An exhibition of ancient artifacts that narrowly survived the turmoil of the 2011 Egyptian uprising opened in Cairo on Monday under the title "Destruction and Restoration."
The exhibit consists of 29 artefacts, including 11 that had been stolen from the famed Egyptian Museum near Cairo's Tahrir Square on January 28, when protesters calling for the overthrow of president Hosni Mubarak drove his feared security forces from the streets.
The other 18 artefacts remained in the museum but were damaged or destroyed by looters. All 29 artefacts have since been recovered and restored.

Ptolemaic mummy with painted anthropoid coffin found hidden in private house in Giza
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/83434.aspx

Police have found a Ptolemaic mummy hidden inside a private house in Giza. Archaeological officials have authenticated the find and say it probably came from an illegal excavation.

The mummy is wrapped in linen covered with a mask painted in blue and gold. The face is decorated with geometric and foliage ornaments. The lower part of the mummy, Khalifa added, bears a large decoration depicting the ancient Egyptian goddess Nut with wings and the four sons of the god Horus.

Tourism "getting better every day" despite violence, minister claims
http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/to ... ter-claims

Egypt's antiquities minister, Mohamed Ibrahim, has reassured foreign tourists looking to arrive in Egypt that they are not at risk amid worrying signs violence could further take hold after another weekend of violence.
...
Ibrahim's statements come a day after Interior Ministry spokesperson Hany Abdel Latif announced tourist sites across Egypt would be fitted with surveillance cameras and security to better protect visitors.
...
"We expected all these problems because we are in a war against terrorism," he added, without elaborating.

Ibrahim meanwhile claimed recent events in Egypt represented an "Egyptian-Egyptian issue" that had not seen foreigners injured.
...
"Now we have the help of the army to protect our museums," he added, saying this should reassure officials worried about future robberies as well as foreigners looking to visit Egypt.
...
"This is why our minister [Zaazou] went around Europe to assure everyone there that nothing is going to happen to foreigners coming here – especially not in Sharm El-Sheikh, Hurghada, or Luxor and Aswan."

Je mag zeggen wat je wil maar voor mij is het duidelijk dat MOMENTEEL de toestand in Egypte NIET veilig is wat de touroperators ook zeggen of wat het reisadvies is van buitenlandse zaken van België of Nederland.
De touroperators starten in oktober 2013 met hun vluchten naar het Rode Zee-gebied omdat het reisadvies veilig is voor die regio.
Voor luxor is het reisadvies negatief en vliegen de touroperators niet tot medio januari 2014.
Ik lees dat er dadelijks gevechten zijn in de Sinaïwoestijn en dat dat gebied te mijden is.
Tenzij ik me vergis ligt de punt van de Sinaïwoestijn in Sharm el Sheikh en toch beweren de touroperators dat het daar veilig is.
Voor de touroperators is GELD het voornaamste motief en het feit dat de touroperators VERHEUGD zouden zijn dat de touristen weer naar het Rode Zee-gebied kunnen is gewoon flauwe kul!

An official at the Egyptian Museum of Cairo, who asked not to be named because he wasn't authorised to speak to the media, said before 2011 ticket sales grossed about $110,000 each day.
"This meant about 10,000 tourists a day. Now, we get 50 foreign visitors a day, if we're lucky," the official said. "Then, we used to pay for our own expenses, but now we're solely dependent on the Ministry of Finance to pay our salaries."

.............
Professor Ikram said its "practically impossible" to quantify the number of objects that were stolen across Egypt since the 2011 mass protests ousted Mubarak and security deteriorated.
"They were not all officially excavated items. Treasures that awaited future excavations were dug out and stolen from sites. These items cannot be counted," said Ikram.

..............
"Looting is as ancient as the pyramids themselves," Tamar Teneishvili, culture officer at Cairo's UNESCO bureau, told Al Jazeera.
"Months ago, we kept alerting the Egyptian authorities that certain excavation sites were being looted and no action was taken. Those were the scariest moments, when the police and army totally stepped back," she said.

Egypte : les archéologues se montrent méfiants
A quelques jours de la reprise des fouilles archéologiques par les missions étrangères, le nombre de celles-ci apparaît en baisse sur le terrain. Et cela, en raison de craintes sécuritaires.
http://hebdo.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/0 ... iants.aspx
... plus de 300 missions archéologiques étrangères tra­vaillaient sur les différents sites archéologiques égyptiens en 2010. Un nombre qui a chuté en 2012 pour atteindre 160 mis­sions. « On a approuvé cette année près d’une soixantaine de missions en Haute-Egypte », sou­ligne le ministre d’Etat pour les Affaires des antiquités, Mohamad Ibrahim.
