Egypt thanks Kuwait for reclaiming Pharaoh artifact

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 10:  Egyptian Foreign Ministry expressed gratitude to Kuwait on Wednesday for cooperating to bring back the lid of a rare antique coffin that had been smuggled into the Gulf state last March.

A ministry statement said the ancient piece was brought back following a relentless follow-up and continuous coordination between the Egyptian embassy in Kuwait and the local authorities.

The vintage casket lid was given to the Egyptian embassy on Monday after Kuwait’s National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters completed a probe into how the relic was smuggled into the country. (KUNA)
