Looting at Dashur

There are reports today that looting is going on at the Egyptian site of Dashur. Local residents are protesting the looting and complaining that the military is ignoring the problem.

Dashur is the site where the Old Kingdom Pharaoh Sneferu (the father of Khufu) built two pyramids (the "Bent" and the "Red" pyramids). Sneferu is, of course, the father of Khufu, who built the Great Pyramid at Giza.
