Egypt in the News: Romancing the stone

The Rosetta Stone once again gets top billing on a mixed day for mentions of Egypt in the foreign press. The polyglottic rock has been moved from one room in the British Museum to another for the first time in 18 years, for an exhibition marking the 200th anniversary of its discovery. The Telegraph frets that the event could be overshadowed (gasp!) by the campaign to have the stone moved a little further — back to Egypt, where it was found.
