Egyptologists and archaeologists have been uneasy since late last week when the unrest in Egypt led to damage to some of the nation's priceless treasures. On Friday, looters at the Cairo Museum damaged two statues of King Tutankhamun, broke 13 glass showcases and damaged 70 other antiquities. There have also been reports of looting at dig sites around the country.
This morning, Dr. Bob Brier, Egyptologist, tells American Morning’s Kiran Chetry and TJ Holmes what damage has been done, how it can be repaired, and how some Egyptians are banding together to protect the museums.
Brier says the entire country of Egypt is a "vast outdoor museum," and that the monuments are certainly not safe.
