Today the Egyptian museum in Tahrir re-opened its door for visitors after closing for a day after violence erupted in Tahrir Square and the military allegedly attacked protesters.
The media rumoured that the museum would close until further notice, however, Zahi Hawass, minister of state for antiquities affairs, confirmed that today at 9:00am five tourist groups from different nationalities visited the museum and toured freely around its halls.
The Egyptian Museum Director Tarek El-Awadi stated that the military forces are still inside the museum safeguarding its halls while the tourism and antiquities police secures its walls and doors.
