The museum employees who allegedly broke King Tut's beard will be prosecuted by Egyptian authorities, according to Egyptian media.
What looked like a haphazard attempt to repair King Tutankhamun's mask at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo came to light in 2014.
The beard came off the over 3,000-year-old artifact after museum workers allegedly mishandled the mask and hastily tried to reattach the beard with glue.
