Did 'mummy's curse' kill Egyptian looters?

• Terrence Aym
Thugs smashed their way into Cairo's Royal Egyptian Museum, the sanctuary of Egypt's priceless past. They sought to smash and grab their way to millions by plundering the royal gold of ancient Pharaohs including the artifacts of the god-king Tut. Inside the museum they took a turn—a turn for the worse—and came upon the silent sarcophagus's of two fragile mummies. Without much thought the destructive punks ripped the heads from the mummies and kicked them around like soccer balls. They never got their hands on the gold. The mummy's curse fell upon them.
