  1. Mrs MP is the P.A. to a leading archaeologist. At the moment he is in constant touch with colleagues in Egypt. The looting of art and antiquities throughout Egypt is extremely worrying and far worse than what has been reported by the world media. It could very easily turn out to be as bad as it was in Iraq.

  3. Yes. Her boss wrote the UN report on the damage to the antiquities in Iraq. Ah, well, at least the report on the damage in Egypt will keep him out of her hair for a long while :-)

  7. You can bet the looters are plainclothes secret police trying to cash in and create chaos that justifies suppression.
