An ancient Egyptian statue stolen during the 2011 revolt against Hosni Mubarak has been found in Belgium.
The piece dates back 2500 years
and went missing from the Egyptian Museum during unrest on Tahrir Square.
The piece was smuggled to Belgium where a French expert analysed it and contacted Egyptian officials.
Egyptian ambassador to EU Ihan Fawzy told Euronews: “This relic is made up of two parts. The other is still in the museum in Egypt and this one will be returned to Cairo to complete the statue.”
Egypt regularly announces the discovery of stolen treasures.
In November, it said it had found dozens of artefacts that had been put up for sale by an auction house in Jerusalem
