Several Muslim clerics are calling for the destruction of Egypt’s Great Pyramids, FrontPage Magazine reported, citing Arabic media accounts.

Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi’i said the pyramids are “symbols of paganism,” while Abd al-Letif al-Mahmoud—president of the National Unity in Bahrain, publicly requested that newly elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi “destroy the Pyramids.”

In Mali, the Associated Press reported that Islamic extremists on Monday decimated tombs as well as the gate of a 600-year-old mosque in the ancient city of Timbuktu.
