MEROE, SUDAN - DECEMBER 16: Picture taken 16 December 2000 shows Hamid Abdullah, the Sudanese guardian of the Pyramids of Meroe, sitting in front of the ancient royal tombs in Sudan's northern desert, some 300 kms north of Khartoum. These distant relatives of Egypt's Great Pyramids are 2,000 years old with the larger pyramids devoted to the kings and the smaller ones to the nobles of Meroe who ruled Sudan from 592 BC to 350 AD. Two Italian tour operators are now running trips to Meroe and a luxury campsite was opened near the remains in November 2000. (FILM) (Photo credit should read PETER KING/AFP/Getty Images)
