Egypt challenges a UK auctioneer over 200 'stolen' antiquities
Ahram Online, London , Wednesday 1 May 2013

Egypt informs International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) of allegedly stolen artefacts on sale at London's Bonhams auction house
Egypt notified the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) on Wednesday that a collection of more than 200 allegedly "stolen" Egyptian antiquities are on auction at London's privately-owned Bonhams.

It appears the Interpol is in contact with relevant authorities in the United Kingdom (UK). The Repatriation of Antiquities Department (RAD) at Egypt's Ministry of State for Antiquities (MSA) is also following the issue with the Interpol officials.
