A total 545 pieces of artifacts stolen from the Mallawi Museum in Minya have been recovered by Egypt's Tourism and Antiquities Police, a security source said.
The Interior Ministry has been campaigning to retrieve hundreds of pieces looted from the museum last month following the dispersal of two major sit-ins staged by supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsy in Rabaa al-Adaweya and Giza's al-Nahda Square
