Egyptian officials confirmed the arrest of a 61-year old Australian man in Cairo for attempting to smuggle ancient artifacts out of the country. The artifacts included a mummified cat, an ibis, and nearly 20 religious figurines. The man's name has not been released and he has yet to be formally charged with any crime; the accused is being detained for now.
