Since Hosni Mubarak's government fell last year, many of Egypt's museums have been looted.
And the looting has gone beyond museums – now criminals are digging up archaeological sites and stealing their treasures.

Redmount described the looters stealing from El-Hibeh's archaeological dig as "essentially a gang of criminals, headed by a master criminal, who escaped from jail after the revolution."
