Tutankhamum may go to Australia as good-will gesture
It is possible that the Tutankhamun exhbition may be made available to Australia as a good-will "thank you" for the return of smuggled artefacts (which are mentioned earlier in this blog). Commenting on the possibility, the Egyptian ambassador in Canberra, Mohamed Tawfik, pointed out that a show on this scale "needs space, it needs organisation - the number of people who usually come to these exhibits are in the millions, the logistics are enormous - but I will do my best to see it comes here."
