CNN has been allowed inside the Egyptian Museum which shows some of what is present, and hints and some things which might be missing. Only three of Thuya's canopic jars are present. Whether the fourth was stolen, damaged or is elsewhere is unknown, but it is widely believed that the stopper from one was shown on the floor in the original coverage just after the break in.

There is a transcript of the commentary in the accompanying article.

The Museum is, however, acquiring an unsavoury reputation as again there are reports that protesters were seized today and detained in the Egyptian Museum. Margaret Maitland has a few more details on her blog.
