Latter-day curse of the mummy
Mummy smugglers jailed for life:
Those found guilty included the former head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, Abdul Karim Abu Shanab. He was accused of giving smugglers certificates showing genuine artefacts were imitations, so they could be carried through customs.According to the article, the Egyptians convicted 3 men for smuggling relics estimated at US$ 50 million. Life in an Egyptian jail cell: now that's what I call a curse.
