General view of the residential area where a coffin containing three mummies was discovered in Alexandria, Egypt July 19, 2018. Egyptian archaeologists on Thursday dashed local hopes that a newly discovered ancient sarcophagus might contain the remains of Alexander the Great, finding instead the mummies of what appeared to be a family of three. Workmen inadvertently unearthed the approximately 2,000-year-old black granite sealed sarcophagus this month during the construction of an apartment building in the historic Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. The 30-ton coffin is the largest yet found in Alexandria, prompting a swirl of theories in local and international media that it may be the resting place of the ancient Greek ruler who in 331 BC founded the city that still bears his name.

CAPTION CORRECTED TO REMOVE MENTION OF COVERING THE EVENT FOR THE FIRST TIME: Team Sky rider Chris Froome of Britain crashed during the Tour de France at the 156.5-km Stage 9 from Arras Citadelle to Roubaix on Sunday. Reuters photographer Benoit Tessier tells how he captured the moment. "The night before, in my hotel room in Arras, I focused on the map of the ninth stage (Arras to Roubaix) so I would have all the information to guide my motorbike rider on the narrow, and sometimes cobbled, roads of northern France. I decided to cover only six of the 15 cobbled sectors and cut through the route at some points. During the stage, the peloton is nervous and many riders crash. At the beginning of sector number 8 in Mons-en-Pevele, I am crouching on the right side of the road. Its large and full of grass. I can’t imagine what’s going to happen next. At 1513, Team Sky, led by Pole Michal Kwiatkowski, arrives at full speed. Gianni Moscon crashes and Chris Froome, as well as Norway’s Alexander Kristoff, cannot avoid him. Yellow jersey holder Greg van Avermaet and German John Degenkolb, who will go on to win the stage, manage to just avoid the pile-up. It lasts a fraction of second. Four-time champion Froome gets back on his bike and makes it back to the main bunch." #reuters #reutersphotos #cycling #crash #France
