This is a telephone call from Jane Akshar of Luxor News, recorded this morning.  Jane is based on the West Bank and said that yesterday (Friday) that people were still out on tours.  The East Bank (Luxor centre) isn't as calm according to new reports; reportedly it has also detiorated during today as I reported earlier.

The mummies are said to have fallen apart as 2 escaped convicts tried to steal them. What use can mummies be for anyone, other than for study? I cannot get my head around that one.

Here it says two mummies had their heads ripped off.

That is just wanton destruction, not even greed. But hooray for those Egyptians who formed a human chain around the national museum.
