Cairo Museum "looted more than once"

Ali Abdel Mohsen, 'Egypt's Museums: From Egyptian Museum to 'torture chamber', al masry al youm, Wed, 20/04/2011.

“The museum is clearly very valuable, and precious, to the Egyptian people,” said Fayza Haikal, a professor of Egyptology at the American University in Cairo. [...] “The museum was looted more than once, especially after 28 January and 11 February. Luckily, most of what was stolen was retrieved, and all that remains missing is a few smaller artifacts," Haikal said.

AUC is just across the square from the Museum. What evidence is there that there was looting after the night of 28th January when the army was in occupation? More to the point, what evidence is there that there was further looting after 11th February? Or is this just loose talk and speculation?
