"Zahi Hawass, who resigned as Egypt’s minister of antiquities
less than a month ago under criticism for his close ties  to former
President Hosni Mubarak, was reappointed to the post on
Wednesday,  Agence France-Presse reported, citing an
Egyptian news report; Mr. Hawass,  reached by phone,
confirmed his reappointment. (..) Mr. Hawass, who has never
been accused of being humble, said on Wednesday that he
did not ask to come back, but that there was no one else who
could do the job. “I cannot live without antiquities, and antiquities
cannot live without me,” he said."
