Egypt animal mummies showcased at Saqqara near Cairo
A large cache of mummified animals found in an ancient Egyptian necropolis have been displayed for the first time near the capital Cairo.
Archaeologists discovered the trove last year near the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, south of the capital.
They uncovered hundreds of artefacts, including masks, statues and mummified cats, crocodiles, cobras and birds.
Egyptian authorities unveiled the artefacts at an exhibition near the Saqqara necropolis on Saturday.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
