Egypt wants Rosetta stone back

Egypt demands the United Kingdom return one of its most-prized ancient artifacts.

    The Egyptian government is demanding the return of an ancient stone tablet which was key to deciphering Heiroglyphics.

    The Rosetta Stone is currently on display in Britain, but the head of Egypt's supreme council of antiquities wants it back after initially asking for the stone to be loaned back to Cairo, Egypt's capital.
