Ahramonline reports that all of the artefacts damaged by looters in the Egyptian Museum will be fully restored during the next five days.

Details of the Later Period artefacts which were damaged have still not been released; nor did this area of the museum appear on the TV coverage of the damage.  It is therefore impossible to assess how much conservation and repair might be needed to this group of artefacts; however, it seems surprising that the badly smashed statue of Tutankhamun riding a black panther has been repaired in such a tight timeframe.
