Egypt's military are guarding Cairo's famed Egyptian Museum after a failed looting attempt. The vandals ripped the heads off two mummies and damaged 10 small artifacts before being caught by army soldiers on Saturday according to Egypt's antiquities chief.
Understandably, the protesters are upset with their government but to destroy a piece of Egyptian history as some sort of attention getting scheme ranks up there with other dumb criminal acts.
The chaos in Egypt has put thousands of valuable pieces of history in the line of fire.
Looters tore the heads off two ancient mummies and destroyed other artifacts at Cairo's Egyptian Museum, and other museums, warehouse and archeological sites around the country have been reportedly raided.
Army commandoes were dispatched over the weekend to protect the 108-year-old museum in Cairo's Tahrir square, where many of the nation's protesters have gathered over the last week.Answer Question
