Hawass Resigns

Various sources report that Hawass has apparently resigned (or been forced to resign by the current Prime Minister).

For more information, see the articles here and here.

Stay tuned for more information on the resignation and the appointment of a new Minister of Antiquities.


UPDATED July 20.

Apparently, it’s not a sure thing yet. It’s hard to get definitive answers about the whole situation. The latest reliable information I’ve found is that Hawass may not have officially lost his post, though a change may be in the works.
