The Ganymede statue
An update via Mohamed Halouani on the Ganymede statue stolen about two weeks ago from the Paleo-Christian Museum in Carthage, Tunisia.
“Officials responsible for monitoring the Paleo-Christian Museum of Carthage are suspected, during the night of Fri. 8 Nov. to Sat. 9 Nov., of stealing the statue of Ganymede. In fact, they have been jailed pending trial.
According to the newspaper La Presse, citing Bahri Fathi, director of sites and monuments at the National Heritage Institute (INP), there was no break-in at the time of the theft. The suspicions of investigators, the source said, were then shifted to the guards, noting that the window by which the thieves broke into the museum had been broken from the inside.”
