''A sudden movement of the pointer of a radiometer he was 쿴olding indicated that the mummies emit rays,'' the Gazette 퀂aid. ''Experiments on 17 mummies from different kingdoms, and 쿯urther studies on the sarcophagi, confirmed the presence of 퀃he rays. More evidence emerged when a camera film was 쿭estroyed by exposure to the radiation,'' it said. 쿔nscriptions on the door of the tomb of an ancient Egyptian 쿾haraoh indicate that ancient Egyptians used a caustic 퀂ubstance in the mummification process, the newspaper said. ''Drawings on the tomb wall confirm this and contain an 쿮xplicit display of burns that can be caused by direct 쿪pplication of the substance,'' it said. 쿌 spokesman at the Cairo University Medical School said 쿯urther details would be revealed once more data has been 쿬ollected and analyzed. =END=
