Egypt recovers two pharaonic palettes from New Zealand

 Egyptian authorities recovered two pharaonic stone palettes from New Zealand, which arrived in Egypt on Wednesday, said Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

A delegation from the Antiquities Ministry received the two pieces from the Foreign Affairs Ministry after examining them, and confirming their authenticity.
 
Ibrahim said that the palettes were in possession of a citizen of New Zealand, who worked as a photographer. He had wished to give the palettes back to Egypt after his death.
