Bible and archaeology news

After rumors and reports that various fringe groups were planning to hold rituals at the Great Pyramid of Giza on the rare date of 11/11/11, Egyptian antiquities officials decided to close the pyramid last Friday for “necessary maintenance.” Pyramid complex director Ali al-Asfar said that all reports of planned ceremonies were “lacking in truth” and that the closing on Friday was due to nothing more than routine maintenance. Still, there was a noticeable and increased security presence on the Giza plateau Friday morning. “Everything is normal,” said al-Asfar as 11:11 a.m. passed. “The only thing different is the closure of the [Great] pyramid.”
