Gaurding the temple of Wadi Al-Sebua

Armed guards have been deployed to protect the remote temple built by Ramses II at the Wadi Al-Sebua near Aswan. The lovely temple was among the buildings moved during the raising of the high dam in the 1960's.

The Minister of state for antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim says that the only damage to the temple is the theft of cables and the lights used to light up the temple.
