The event was organized by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the Egyptian Ambassador to Germany Khaled Galal, in the presence of many public figures, intellectuals, and writers.

 

“We are now searching for Imhotep's tomb in Saqqara …The Egyptian mission has already started working in the area," Hawass said, adding, "We are also looking for Queen Nefertiti in Luxor."
