Egypt transported a collection of ancient royal mummies across the capital of Cairo over the weekend, raising concerns about a so-called “curse of the pharaohs.”
The 18 kings and four queens were paraded to their new home in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilizations. But the move reignited talk on social media about the curse. It’s been blamed for recent incidents like the ship blocking the Suez Canal, a train crash that killed dozens last month and a building collapse in Cairo. The rumors were quickly dismissed by Egyptian archaeologists before the mummies were relocated.
