The Ethiopian Ark is in danger

THIS IS TERRIBLE: Fabled ark could be among ancient treasures in danger in Ethiopia’s deadly war. (Harriet Sherwood, The Guardian via MSN).
It has been hidden from view for thousands of years, and its whereabouts never proved. But if the Ark of the Covenant indeed rests in a chapel in northern Ethiopia, this extraordinary religious treasure could be at grave risk from fighting in the area.
For PaleoJudaica posts on the supposed Ark of the Covenant in this Ethiopian chapel see here and follow the links here. I am saddened to hear that the region is at war.
