The thieves who made off with van Gogh's 'Poppy Flowers' in a daytime Cairo art heist weren't met with alarms or guards. The head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities said Egypt would create a central security office.
Stolen Van Gogh painting 'Vase with Flowers,' worth $50 million, has not been seen since Saturday. The prosecutor general ordered the detention of Deputy Culture Minister Mohsen Shalaan and four of the museum's security guards while they are investigated on suspicion of neglect and professional delinquency.
