Egypt arrested and charged with bribery Thursday two ranking officials at the Culture Ministry for taking kickbacks from the construction companies restoring the nation's antiquities, a security official said. Ayman Abdel Moneim, the director of the Cultural Development Fund and the No.2 man in the ministry, and his colleague Hussein Ahmed, were being questioned Thursday by prosecutors, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the press. No further details on the nature of the charges or the companies involved were given.
