Al-Ahram Weekly has an article on the situation of the Amarna boundary stellae.  The Ministry is denying reports that a stella has recently been damaged by mining, although it admits that it is in poor condition and is suffering from deterioration and that some parts of it have collapsed.   However, the official line is not fully accepted and even the pro-establishment Ahram reports:

However, some Egyptologists who requested anonymity did not accept the ministry's announcement. They believe strongly that in spite of the revolution Egyptians are still facing the same problems and the same false statements.
It is actually quite a good article about the stellae and well worth reading.

Thanks to Patrick.
