I don't understand the language (could there be a link in English), also no images showing the musem.
I would like to know more about this if you have sources. If this is happening it is a really sad thing, I am hoping its isn't so.

Your links just take me to a live feed from Egypt and it's hard to tell what I'm looking at...but I'll tell you, if those mid east people keep destroying the World's antiquities I'm going to stop thinking nice thoughts about them. And I mean it too.

yeah this could be real bad. i don't know what museum it is or anything, but throughout history this has always proven to a really bad idea. the amount of knowledge that was lost in the library of alexandria makes me want to just,, die.

Fires are also burning around the museum and molotov cocktails are being thrown in the direction of the museum




Vehicles burn in front of Cairo's Egyptian Museum


Is all I can find on the latest news feeds, nothing saying the museum itself is on fire yet.
www.jsonline.com...
cnn

The museum is Cairo's Egyptian Museum, also called the National Museum.
en.wikipedia.org...


There are several artifacts & more there , one of the most notable being tutankhamun's

I was afraid of this. It's irreplaceable, and invaluable. They've put fires out near it earlier today, but they are not out now. However, the fires seem to be in front of it, but not on the structure itself, as far as I can tell.

The museum contains 107 halls.


The Museum also comprises a photography section and a large library. The Egyptian museum comprises many sections arranged in chronological order



The first section houses Tutankhamon’s treasures.
The second section houses the pre-dynasty and the Old Kingdom monuments.
The third section houses the first intermediate period and the Middle Kingdom monuments.
The forth section houses the monuments of the Modern Kingdom.
The fifth section houses the monuments of the late period and the Greek and Roman periods.
The sixth section houses coins and papyrus.
The seventh section houses sarcophagi and scrabs.


A hall for the royal mummies was opened at the museum, housing eleven kings and queens. More than a million and half tourists visit the museum annually, in addition to half a million Egyptians.

I heard a report on bbc from an english egypitan actor, who is stuck in the square rigth now. He said when the pro president protesters came earlier they where been guided by a laser into the big crowds. and he reckons it was a plan by the govt.

He was reporting from his phone on bbc news 24. I avnt got a link because i was watching live on skly.

Calm down! it's not the Cairo Egyptian museum that is burning.

They said on CNN and Al Jazeera that it was a residential building close by!

And it was the pro-Mubarak thugs who started to throw Molotovs towards the building and its courtyard.

The military is using the National Museum and its yard and parking-lot as their temporary HQ.

Yes. I agree. And I don't think most westerners get this yet.

As my signature has always said, what goes around comes around.

Just keep saying it

Lol .... this is really funny.

You know what, if Israel and their strange leader Netanyahooooohooo would have come out and supported the call for Democracy instead of backing a corrupt old douchbag, then maybe some of the protestors would have welcomed the intervention of the 'West'

So long as nut jobs like him seek to quell the uprising the west will be shunned.

What the dimwit should have done is offer to send help to the uprising.

From reading this thread I am relieved to hear that there is not an actual museum burning (yet).
This whole week I have been dreading news like this. The Library of Alexandria burning was, in my eyes, one of the biggest disasters in history, with all of the knowledge lost for the generations to come. These musuems dont house irreplacable knowledge, but the artifacts housed there certainly are. I would just hope that the fire prevention systems are good enough (do they even have fire prevention systems? I've only ever been to US musuems)

That's incredible. The fire is right outside of the museum according to the anchor woman. Could you imagine a large fire being allowed to continue burning in front of the Smithsonian?

Petrol bombs thrown at protest near Egypt Museum

(Reuters) - Petrol bombs were thrown in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said. An Egyptologist said some had landed in the gardens of a museum housing the world's greatest collection of Pharaonic treasures.

The Egyptian museum itself however was unscathed.

The Egyptologist, who had been in contact with Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, said it seemed the petrol bombs were being thrown by protesters demonstrating in favour of President Hosni Mubarak.

www.reuters.com...

They were NEAR the museum, there are no substantiated reports of the museum being damaged at all except for the first day of protesting when some items were looted.


Can a moderator please edit this thread appropriately? including the spelling in the title.

Could you imagine a million uncontrollable people in a small part of a large city?

When the people take control, anything is possible.
