Great Pyramid's secret rooms: Two mysterious 'cavities' are uncovered in Egypt's 4,500-year-old monument

Experts confirmed the existence of the mysterious cavities on Saturday after scanning the millennia-old monument with radiography equipment.
It follows an announcement by the antiquities ministry on Thursday that 'two anomalies' were found in the pyramid built 4,500 years ago under King Khufu.
They said they were conducting further tests to determine their function, nature and size.
