Egyptian officials highlighted on Tuesday the recent successful transportation of a huge fragile 4,600-year-old pharaonic boat from an old museum to the new Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) nearly 10 km away. The 42-meter-long and 20-tonne solar boat was discovered in 1954 beside the Great Pyramid of Giza that belonged to King Khufu. (Xinhua/Ahmed Gomaa)
