CAIRO - 29 November 2017: Antiquities Minister Khaled el Anani witnessed on Tuesday a ceremony to mark the 115th anniversary of the Egyptian museum's foundation in Cairo.

The ceremony was attended by a number of ministers, MPs, governors, and foreign ambassadors to Egypt.

At the beginning of the ceremony, the attendees observed a minute of silence for the victims of Friday's terrorist attack on Al Rawda Mosque in North Sinai.

"The Egyptian museum will never fade away, and will remain a source of admiration," Annai said, adding that the museum will be renovated soon to display new artifacts.

A press conference will be held on December 9 to unveil a big archaeological discovery in Luxor governroate, he noted.

Annai also inaugurated an exhibition displaying 86 artifacts for two weeks.
