CAIRO: The Israeli Antiquities Authorities (IAA) stopped the sale of Egyptian antiquities at an auction in Jerusalem, according to a letter sent to Minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

After the Egyptian ministry of antiquities discovered that 110 Egyptian artifacts were presented for sale at an auction in Jerusalem, they cooperated with the Egyptian ministry of foreign affairs and the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv, who contacted the IAA to stop the sale, reported Youm7.

Many Egyptian museums were looted following the January 25 Revolution in 2011, including the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square.
