This is only tangentially about Egypt but I think it's a valuable read at present because it indicates the scale of international antiquities smuggling.  It's also interesting because it indicates the rĂ´le Egypt has perhaps been playing in the smuggling of Libyan antiquities. It's also worrying because it demonstrates that there may already be well-tested routes for smuggling antiquities out of Egypt so anything looted during the unrest might not long remain within Egypt.
