CAIRO - The Egyptian authorities have recovered a pharaonic statue looted from a museum that was ransacked during unrest touched off by the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi this summer.

The limestone statue of Ankhesenpaaten, a sister of Tutankhamun, was recovered from the home of a man who worked at a coffee shop in Khan al-Khalili, a tourist bazaar in Cairo's Islamic quarter, Ashraf Sharaf, the head of museums, said.



He said the statue, about 31 centimeters high, had suffered three cracks, adding that these were easily fixable.

The statue was one of more than a thousand artifacts stolen in August from the Malawi museum south of Cairo in Minya, 800 of which have been recovered, the antiquities ministry said.
