Egypt ministry thwarts attempt to rob fence of Salah Eddin Citadel

CAIRO: Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry thwarted an attempt to steal the external iron fence of the Citadel of Salah Eddine recently.
The ministry, along with tourism police, discovered suspicious movements near the fence overlooking Cairo’s Salah Salem Road.
They found five people trying to unscrew the iron fence and transport it by cart, local reports have said.
Four of the robbers were arrested and taken to the Cairo Antiquities Police Department.
They will be presented to prosecution for further procedures, the report added.
The Citadel is a must-see in Cairo’s Islamic quarters, a 12th-century bastion built by Ayyubid ruler Salahuddin to protect Egypt against the Crusaders.
