Dr Zahi Hawass Resigns

Dr Zahi Hawass resigns

Dr Zahi Hawass has resigned as Egypts Antiquities Minister because Egyptian treasures are being looted and ravaged and there is little protection from the authorities.

Since Mubarak’s resignation, looting has increased all over Egypt, antiques and treasures are being stolen by criminals taking advantage of the situation.

“The antiquities guards and security forces at sites are unarmed and this makes them easy targets for armed looters,” said Dr Hawass. “In addition, the Egyptian police force does not have the capacity to protect every single site, monument and museum in Egypt.”
