Further analysis is needed of the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamun to determine whether the resting place also contains the remains of legendary beauty Queen Nefertiti, Egypt’s antiquities minister said on Thursday. Khaled al-Anani appeared to dim some of the optimism surrounding the tomb in the ancient necropolis of Luxor after his predecessor said that there was a "90% chance” of two hidden chambers possibly containing organic material at the site.
"I hope we are going to find something else, but nothing is certain at the moment,” Anani told AFP outside Tutankhamun’s tomb. He was speaking as new radar tests were carried out on the mausoleum. The results are expected on Friday.
