Van Gogh Theft Update

The investigation into the van Gogh stolen from a museum in Egypt continues. Last week, an Egyptian billionaire offered a 1-million Egyptian pound reward for information leading to its return. Turbo Paul was not impressed -- 1-million Egyptian pounds is about $175,000. Next, Egypt’s minister of culture was questioned by prosecutors for more than three hours on Sunday night. And Derek Fincham notes that "perhaps most troubling of all were the breakdowns in technology at the museum."
