Two Pharaonic tombs discovered in Egypt's Luxor

Egypt's Luxor
Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khalid El-Anany announced Saturday the discovery of a new tomb and the re-discovery of an older one in the heritage-rich Luxor province in Upper Egypt.

Both tombs were given special numbers by German archaeologist "Frederica Kampp" during the 1990s, the minister told reporters during the opening ceremony of the tombs.

The first tomb has the number of "Kampp 161" and has never been excavated before while the second one has the number of "Kampp 150" and Kampp started its excavation until reaching its entrance gate but never entered it, the minister said.

Since then both tombs were left untouched until the Egyptian archaeological mission started its excavations during the recent archaeological season, Anany added.
