String of Strange Incidents in Egypt Sparks Pharaohs' Curse Speculation
March 30, 2021
A series of strange events that have occurred in Egypt over the last week has sparked speculation among residents that perhaps the country has been struck by a pharaohs' curse ahead of a forthcoming parade of royal mummies. The most high-profile incident took place last week when a massive cargo ship became stuck in the Suez Canal and effectively stopped traffic through the critical waterway until finally becoming free on Monday. However, that headline-making predicament was just one of several odd events which have reportedly caused some Egyptians to express concern that bad luck has befallen their country.
Beyond the stuck cargo ship, last week saw a train crash that killed a staggering 39 people, the collapse of an apartment building wherein 18 people perished, and a massive fire at a railway station which thankfully did not result in any deaths, but did cause considerable chaos. Taken together, the spate of unfortunate events has led some residents to put forward an intriguing supernatural source for their country's current consternation: a pharaohs' curse. Specifically, they point to a much-anticipated national event set to unfold this coming Saturday wherein 22 royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum will be transported to their new home in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.
