A gang smuggling antiques get caught in Ain Shams, Egypt, and social media celebrates

Members of an organized gang in Egypt confessed to possessing vast amounts of archaeological treasures and antiques in a 3 meters coffin, which they prepared to sell.

In one of the most decisive security strikes to combat excavation crimes, Alayoun El Sahera (watchful eyes) succeeded in seizing a gang in the Ain Shams area as part of the Ministry of Interior’s efforts to combat crime in all its forms, especially excavation crimes.

The topic became a trend in Egypt after the news was announced. The Social Media users commented that just as there are men whose goal is to waste the civilization of a people and sell it for cheap, there are watchful eyes that protect and defend our history.

Under the hashtag #بلد_الامن_والامان (translates to country of safety and security), Twitter users celebrate the arrest of the Ain Shams gang for smuggling antiquities.
