Ark of the covenant! Found!?!?

I’m trying to find out what happened. One of the talk shows on Catholic Talk radio briefly mentioned there was info circulating about the Ark of The Covenant being unveiled in Ethiopia yesterday, and I never heard anymore on it.
He said that it was unlikely to be the real thing in his oppinion, but at that time he didn’t have enough info to make anymore speculative comments. Can anyone help shine some light?

It was a hoax…check the other thread

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church claims to have the Ark, but it is not being unveiled.
