Unrest puts Cairo museum at risk

Several priceless and ancient artefacts damaged during violent street protests.

    Looters have managed to break into the Egyptian museum in Cairo during violent street protests.

    Several priceless and ancient artefacts have been damaged. Officials say nothing was stolen, but the images of empty cabinets suggest otherwise.

    Troops have now secured the museum and authorities at sites across the country have taken precautions to secure antiquities.
