Egyptologists and archaeologists have been at unease since late last week when the unrest in Egypt led to damages to some of the nation's priceless treasures. Last Friday, looters at the Cairo Museum damaged two statues of King Tutankhamun, broke 13 glass showcases and damaged 70 other antiquities. There have also been reports of looting at dig sites around the country.
This morning, Dr. Bob Brier, Egyptologist, tells AM’s Kiran Chetry and T.J. Holmes what damage has been done, how it can be repaired, and how some Egyptians are banding together to protect the museums.
Brier says the entire country of Egypt is a "vast outdoor museum," and that the monuments are certainly not safe.
