Zahi Hawass Out as Egypt's Antiquities Minister

On Sunday, Zahi Hawass confirmed to New York Times reporter Kate Taylor that he will indeed be losing his job as Egypt’s antiquities minister.

Now that he appears to be leaving for good, as part of a cabinet reshuffling, perhaps he will focus full time on his clothing line.
