Quaitbay Citadel in Danger of Collapse
The Egyptian cultural bureaucracy has done nothing to save Alexandria's famous Quaitbay Citadel from the danger of collapse.

Is this demand-- supported by GW's "Capitol Archaeological Institute" and others---really about conservation or is it only about control?
