King Tut statue Damaged

Amid the protests in Egypt, valuable historical artifacts are being damaged. A statue in the King Tutankhamun galleries was broken over the past weekend as protesters over the wall in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.Roughly 50 people were being kept at the museum, which holds many of Egypt’s national treasures, going all the way back to the time of the pharaohs.

I really hope the situation gets under control in Egypt pretty soon, before any more valuable artifacts are destroyed and lost forever.
