Scans suggest `90%` chance of hidden chamber in King Tut tomb

"We can now say that we have to find behind the burial chamber of King Tutankhamun another chamber, another tomb," Mamduh al-Damati said at a press conference, speaking in English.

He said experts were "approximately 90 percent" sure. The tests were spurred by a study by renowned British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves that said Nefertiti`s lost tomb may be hidden in an adjoining chamber.
