A number of important historical documents and an ancient golden lamp were stolen last night from the edifice known among the inhabitants of Palestine as Joseph’s Tomb.
The tomb is located at Nablus and is considered a Holy Site by the Moslems. Recently American tourists offered to buy the golden lamp at a price of Â£ 6,000. But the Moslem Supreme Council refused to sell it.
