To the embarassment of all concerned a couple arrested at Luxor airport have been released after it was realised that the items in their baggage were not antiquities but tourist trinkets.  Luxor Times is demanding that the tourists concerned are offered a full apology by the authorities.

One would think that with all the out of work archaeologists in Egypt one would be employed at Luxor airport so that these mix ups didn't happen.
