Egypt museum pieces still missing after looting

Five rare and priceless Egyptian statues and artefacts dating back to the pharaohs are still missing after looters broke into Cairo's museum during the political turmoil there.

The authorities say a number of men have been arrested. Today journalists were allowed inside the museum, which is still closed to visitors.
