That's an AP photo midway down of one of the destroyed mummies in the National Museum.  It's AP so I won't break copyright and repost here directly.  Identity so far unknown.  Can you help?  (Thanks to Stuart Tyler for the heads up.)

You'll see that page is in a total jumble of languages.  Piecing together anything coherent for an English audience takes time.  Andie has done a good job with this morning's news over at Egyptology News so I won't repeat it.  I'm just coming online now, but other this photo there is little to report. 

Everything I am reading says Luxor and the West Bank remains quiet but so much of Egypt is off the comms net, there simply is no news from some sites.

Kate, the only useful information that I could find is in the Spanish link to El Pais (excellent Spanish newspaper). It's somewhat purple prose but it says that some of the damaged items are from Tanis.

Thanks Andie
I'll take a look. It certainly makes sense as that would fit known facts.
