Former Egyptian Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass commented on the discovery of a secret passage inside the Great Pyramid of Khufu, saying the pyramid contains secrets not found in others. Hawass says he believes that under the newly-discovered nine-meter corridor is the original burial chamber of King Khufu. “The burial chamber of King Khufu inside the Great Pyramid has not been discovered, but I expect that the beneath the secret passage is the burial chamber of King Khufu.”Egypt gained publicity worth millions of dollars with the announcement of this discovery, he added. Issa spoke about the ScanPyramids project, describing it as an important research project in which advanced scientific technology was used. He explained that this project began in 2015 under former Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty, and continued under former minister Khaled al-Anany in 2016.
