Archaeologists find five headless sphinxes in Luxor
Archaeologists in Luxor, central Egypt, have found five headless sphinxes which belonged to a sphinx-lined avenue connecting a temple built by pharaohs in the city with Karnak, antiquity administrators in Cairo said.

Scientists are now trying to discover whether the figures match four broken sphinx heads, found a long time ago, sources said.
