Apollo of Gaza: no news is news

HAARETZ: Whereabouts and future of Gaza Apollo still unclear. The Louvre denies reports that it will be restoring and exhibiting the statue, which was found off the Gaza coast last summer. Okay, not quite no news, but not much. The article also indicates that Hamas hopes to use the statue and its restoration to gain some political acceptance in the West.

Background (including concerns about the authenticity of the statue) here and links.
