Egypt cuts links with Louvre

Posted by: admin In: Guardian

The Egyptian government said today that its antiquities department had severed ties with the Louvre in Paris because it had refused to return “stolen” artefacts. The Louvre has said it is open to returning the four reliefs from the tomb of the noble Tetaki, though it is awaiting a decision from a committee of experts and final approval from the culture ministry. The ruling means that no archaeological expeditions connected to the Louvre will be allowed to work in Egypt. Among the Supreme Council of Antiquities’ other targets is the Rosetta Stone, pictured, which is in the British Museum.
