Art Museum Can Keep Egyptian Mummy Mask


     ST. LOUIS (CN) - The St. Louis Art Museum can keep the 3,200-year-old Egyptian mummy mask of Ka-Nefer-Nefer, despite the U.S. government's "bold assertion" that it was stolen from Egypt, a federal judge ruled.


     The Egyptian government claimed the mask was stolen sometime between 1966 and 1973
