Egypt crisis threatens Islamic art

A string of fatal bombings in Cairo which targeted security headquarters have also taken a toll on the country's art collection.

The blasts seriously damaged the nearby Islamic Art museum. UNESCO says it is a blow to the history and identity of the Egyptian culture.

The damage has been estimated at over $10m (£6m).

Sally Nabil reports from Cairo.
