US to return smuggled artifacts to Egypt

I would like to share the following post from Archaeoloy News Network regarding the US and its repatriation of artifacts smuggled out of Egypt in 2011.

As I noted in many posts,  the turmoil in many countries affects the stability of that country's heritage,  involving looting, desecration,  and destruction of sites.  

I am almost always a champion for repatriation,  but I wonder if these artifacts will be safe given the current instability.
