Saturday Morning Peculiarity
There always seems to be something slightly off the wall on a Saturday morning. This little gem comes from the Egyptian Mail, the Saturday edition of the Egyptian Gazette: "A woman and her husband were nabbed in Alexandria for excavating inside their house allegedly in search for a treasure, said a local newspaper.Detectives found out that the couple had recruited the service of labourers for the excavation suggested by a quack, who fooled them into believing that there was a treasure inside their house, added Al Messa.The unidentified quack also told them to recite the "Jinn" chapter of the Holy Qur'an and burn incense purportedly to help the jinns to reveal the treasure. Their act struck terror into neighbours, added the paper". There are no more details about this peculiar story on the web page.
