CAIRO – 30 November 2017: Prominent Egyptologist Zahi Hawas has revealed many secrets regarding the recently discovered gap in the Great Pyramid through a TV interview on CBC channel on Sunday.
The recently discovered Great Pyramid gap was announced by the international Scan Pyramid mission under the authority of Ministry of Antiquities this month. "The way the great pyramid was built makes it full of void spaces," Hawas stated.
The Minister of Antiquities Khaled Anani formed a committee consisting of international experts to evaluate the latest Scan Pyramid project results; "The committee is headed by Hawas," the minister stated.
"In addition, there is a new Egyptian – American- Japanese archaeological mission planning to conduct research inside the Great Pyramid," Hawas announced.

Being an inspiring icon of civilization, Hawas stressed that the world is still impressed by the Ancient Egyptian civilization, and the number of tourists is increasing due to safety and stability in Egypt.
