Egypt 28th Jan 2011: Museum at Dusk

Some time at the end of the day the staff of the Egyptian Museum go home for the day, leaving - according to the Minister of Antiquities writing the next day - just three guards on duty. The rest went home to their families. Although they were criticised for this in the light of what subsequently happened, it later emerged that the reason for this was reportedly that the Museum was full (?) of secret servicemen (from the Ministry of Interior most likely) who were using the security staff room and the museum's own security cameras (pointing at Tahrir Square) to monitor events in the Square. Reportedly the museum Director Tarek al-Adly was with them.
