Rare glimpse of Tutankhamun’s mummy

Egypt put the mummy of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun on display in his tomb in the Valley of the Kings on Sunday, giving visitors their first chance to see the face of a ruler who died more than 3 000 years ago. The mummy’s face has high cheekbones and cracked and blackened skin with an intact nose.
