An official source in UNESCO said he will prepare a detailed report about the condition of the Egyptian historic churches and museums, which were affected by the acts of violence in the past month, to send it to UNESCO, which in turn will see what it can do to help in their restoration.
It is worth mentioning that the churches and museum have been stormed and ransacked with some being torched by extremists after security forces on August 14 dispersed two large days-long sit-ins in Cairo and Giza staged by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsy.
The International Council of Museums (ICOM) and UNESCO condemned the acts of sabotage against Minya's Mallawy Museum in Egypt, which have come under attack by extremists during the past month. Nearly 1090 artifacts have been taken from the museum.
Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim received on Thursday 12/09/2013 architectural expert Pierre-André Lablaude, who was assigned by UNESCO to evaluate the condition of historical churches and Minya's Mallawy Museum. Lablaude will prepare a detailed report about the condition of the ancient buildings and the museum.
