The mask of King Tutankhamun is sound and there is no "true threat" to its safety, Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said on Saturday 24/1/2015.

"The epoxy glue used in renovating the mask was mistakenly used according to what was revealed by a German expert," Damaty said at a press conference at the Egyptian Museum.

He added that technicians responsible for the "botched" repair will be referred to investigations.
