"I felt deeply sorry today when I came this morning to the Egyptian Museum and found that some had tried to raid the museum by force last night," Zahi Hawass, chairman of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said Saturday.
"Egyptian citizens tried to prevent them and were joined by the tourism police, but some (looters) managed to enter from above and they destroyed two of the mummies," 
 There is no news of which mummies were destroyed or whether other artefacts were damaged or stolen, but the ticket office was trashed.  The story was reported by Reuters.
