Stolen Samples from Great Pyramid

Two amateur Egyptologist's entered the great pyramid of Khufu on the Giza plateau climbed to the chamber above the kings burial chamber and stole samples of paint from a cartouche painted in that chamber of King Khufu's name. The amateurs then took their samples out of Egypt against international law to Dresden University.

The German Ambassador is distancing the German Archaeological Institute and any German archaeological mission in Egypt from the two men. The men are being placed on an airport watch list and charges are being looked at.
