Ten DSS fragments at SWBTS?

TEN FRAGMENTS? Last year it was reported that Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary had acquired three fragments of the the Dead Sea Scrolls. Later, three more fragments were added to that. (See also here.) But now in an article entitled, "Dead Sea Scrolls expert presents book in chapel," about Peter Flint and his new edition of the Isaiah Scroll, the number is given as ten:
Southwestern Seminary currently possesses ten fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Flint, a professor at Trinity Western University and co-director for the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute, has partnered with the seminary in promoting the study and publication of these scrolls.
What's the story?
