“Red List” Intended to Curb Antiquities Smuggling

Bible and archaeology news

International museum and heritage officials are creating a “red list” of protected artifacts to help curb antiquities smuggling out of Egypt. According to some officials, Egyptian antiquities are being looted and trafficked with increasing frequency as a result of the country’s ongoing political unrest. The red list, set to be released in November, will include the various categories of objects that are protected by Egyptian and international legislation, as well as those most at risk of being illicitly exported and traded. The list will then be distributed to international customs officials, border agents and antiquities dealers in hopes that smuggled objects can be identified and retrieved before they are sold.
