Today, after winning a lawsuit in court in London, Egypt's embassy in the UK received 12 ancient Egyptian artefacts that were stolen and illegally smuggled out of the country in the aftermath of the January 2011 revolution.
Minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim, who described the court verdict as "historic," told Ahram Online that the artefacts in question are now in the Egyptian embassy and are due to arrive in Cairo at the end of June.
The artefacts include a granite relief depicting a Nubian scene that was a decorative element at the base of a statue of King Amenhotep III discovered in 2000 by a German archaeological mission at the king's funerary temple in Luxor's West Bank.
