Dr Mohamed Ibrahim, minister of antiquities, met with heads of the Tourism Police, national security and administrative control to discuss the needed mechanisms to secure all archaeological sites and monuments. The meeting was held in the wake of the cabinet’s announcement concerning the Muslim Brotherhood, which is now considered a terrorist organisation.

Ibrahim demanded that any evidence regarding tampering with monuments is submitted through the right legal channels so that proper procedures can begin. He also demanded the “elimination of any corrupt elements” within the ministry and asked for a “vigorous attitude to rise up against any threats resulting from the current terrorist attacks that the country is currently experiencing”.
