    Found 12th Dead Sea scrolls cave

    An archeological expedition from the University of Jerusalem announced the discovery of a new cave (the 12th?) containing scrolls at Qumran. Broken jars holding parchments - already looted in the 50s or 60s - were found in the cave. Only one scroll fragment was discovered. It cannot be excluded a priori that a number of scrolls that have ended up in the antiques market and have already been published, originated from this cave.
