Saving The Museum

by digby

Here's the fullest account I've seen of what's happening at the Egyptian Museum
. As I write this, it is being threatened by fire from the neighboring NDP building. keep your fingers crossed that this doesn't happen. These are among the most valuable antiquities in the world and it would be a catastrophe if they were harmed.

The army is on site. But the really good news is that people formed a human wall to protect it from further damage and looting.
