The Egyptian Antiquities Ministry says the remains of a pyramid built over 3,000 years ago has been discovered just outside of Cairo. What's left of the pyramid to be uncovered is in good condition, potentially offering archaeologists further insight into the more than 120 pyramids already discovered.
A top antiquities official said it's believed to have been built during the 13th Pharaonic dynasty, some 3,700 years ago.
