Arrests have been made in an alleged smuggling case as announced by Dr Hawass on his blog, who suggests he helped to authenticate the items seized.  The allegations relate to the movement of antiquities before the January Revolution.  I am not proposing to cover it in detail here because Paul Barford has extensive coverage in several posts on his blog and will no doubt track any developments.
