The Nefertiti bust should be returned to Egypt where it was uncovered nearly 100 years ago, the nation says
The Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt head Zahi Hawass said the 3,300-year-old legendary statue of Queen Nefertiti should be returned to its home.
Germany currently has the bust on display at Neues Museum in Berlin where it is the centerpiece of the museum's Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection.
"This is not an official request. An official request is a request from one government to another," German foreign ministry spokesman Andreas Peschke told AFP.
