Flags on the Great Pyramid rejected (The Age)
A plan by Malaysia to raise its profile globally has been rejected by the Supreme Council of Antiquities: "Malaysian authorities suffered a setback today in their plan to send a 35-member team to drape Egypt's Great Pyramid at Giza with the flags of the world's 57 Muslim countries. The chairman of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, the body responsible for the Giza site, said in Cairo that he would not allow it to be draped. . . . Hawass said he had rejected other requests to exploit the Great Pyramid in some way. He did not give details".
