All that's in at the present time is the announcement and a link taking the viewer to the live satellite feed.

If true, then there go all the artifacts up in smoke.
Case in point why the artifacts should stay in the British Museum.
Geepers...idiots roaming at large.
Just like the LA riots - idiots burning their own infastructure, neighborhoods and local assets.
Similar to cattle craping in their own beds.
CNN just said the fire is across the street from the museum.
Rioting muslims destroyed the library at Alexandria. This has been going on for centuries.
Personally I’m disgusted with the media blaming everything on the “pro mubarak” protesters. After all, they didn’t even appear till today. Who was burning things and throwing rocks yesterday?
Ignorance + Machismo = Disaster
This sort of behavior reveals the fact that there are radical Muslim groups involved here and that this is not just a peacefull, people power revolution. Egyptians know the value of their past particularly in tourist dollars but also in culture. Radical muslim groups, however, want all of this histroy destroyed as it is perceived to be against allah and is a sacrilege to keep on it muslim soil.
The loss of the treasures is a crime against all humanity.
I had heard it set a tree afire.. al arabiya said the museum.. which is odd, it’s exterior is mostly mortar, stone and inside, dust.. as I recall.
Zahwi Hawass threw a fit a while back over the treatment of some things on display in NY. Wonder how he feels today.
(BTW, he was awarded a position in Mubarak’s new government the other day)
Anyone hear about CNN’s Anderson Cooper being punched out (hit 10 times) by demonstrators in Cairo?
Yep. It’s disgusting...
Just the thought of destroying these priceless artifacts makes me ill.
Don’t these idiot’s have any pride? So very sad.
Ignorance + Machismo = ISLAM
Let it all burn, I’m sick of this crap, whip their memory from the face of the earth ...
I am giving up on Fox News for at least a little while. They are constantly peddling their new iPad app instead of real news.
