Dahshur Egypt - November 09:

An Egyptian family visiting the pyramids of Dahshur spend more time exploring the new holes that have appeared near them.

On the edge of Dahshur Egypt new holes have been made by artifact thieves, digging beside the archeological sites of Sneferu's Pyramids. These include Sneferu's Red Pyramid, and Sneferu's Bent Pyramid. Since the revolution the Egyptian security forces haven't been guarding archeological sites as much as in the past. Making independent archeological exploration easier.
