ABC News: 'Egypt has the right to demand the repatriation of a stone sculpture of King Tutankhamun before it goes up for auction at Christie's in London next month, according to the country’s former antiquities chief.'
"It seems that this sculpture was looted from [Luxor's] Karnak Temple. Christie's would not have any proof whatsoever of its ownership,” Zahi Hawass, a renowned Egyptian archaeologist, told ABC News.
The 3,000-year-old statue could sell for around $5 million, according to the auction house. From the Resandro Collection, the piece is scheduled to be sold on July 4.
