Youngster Finds Lost Egyptian Museum Statue in Trash

AFP is reporting that a teenager found a priceless statue of Akhenaton from the Egyptian Musuem in the trash left over after the crowds left Tahir square. See

The statute has been returned to the authorities for restoration, but questions remain about why the statue was discarded.

To me at least, this supports the theory that the museum looting was actually done by Mubarak regime thugs bent on destruction in the hopes it would cause a backlash against the demonstrators.
