Ancient tombs found near Cairo

Archaeologists discover brightly painted tombs of father and son who died more than 4,000 years ago.

Two tombs from the age of pyramids have been discovered in the ancient necropolis of Saqqara, near Cairo in Egypt.

The paintings depict a father and son, whom the tombs belong to, as important government officials and include two fake doors.

Archaeologists say the most impressive feature is the brightness of the colours on the doors guarding the 4,200- year-old tombs.
