Egypt to Try 11 People in Van Gogh Painting Theft

Egypt’s public prosecutor said 11 people will be tried in connection with the theft of a $55 million Vincent Van Gogh painting in a Cairo museum, the state-run Middle East News Agency reported.

If convicted, the people, who include museum officials and security guards, could face sentences of as much as three years for dereliction of duty and negligence, the Cairo-based agency reported, without saying where it got the information.
