The arrested people in Aswan - YOUM7
CAIRO: 7 April 2017: Seven men were arrested over accusations of carrying out illegal excavation works beneath Pharaonic King Ramses II’s chapel in Aswan, said Hani Abu El-Azm, head of the Central Administration of Upper Egypt Antiquities on Thursday.
The arrested people are under investigation and the administration will write a report about the illegal works, he added in a statement.
In February 2016, three camel vendors were arrested for breaking pieces of 4,400-year-old Giza Pyramid of Menkawre and selling them to the tourists, for a price ranging between EGP 250 (U.S. $13) and EGP 5,000 (U.S. $277).
