Nefertiti 'could return to Egypt'

Germans consider lending bust of Egyptian queen to place of her birth.

    She was considered Egypt's most beautiful queen, but Nefertiti's iconic image has stood in Germany for the last 100 years.

    Now officials from both countries are talking about the Germans possibly "lending" her statue back to Egypt.

    The Egyptians claim they were tricked into letting the bust go in the first place.
