The patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia says he will announce to the world Friday the unveiling of the Ark of the Covenant, perhaps the world's most prized archaeological and spiritual artifact, which he says has been hidden away in a church in his country for millennia, according to the Italian news agency Adnkronos.

I watched a show on Discovery or History channel about artifacts like the Ark and they were talking about ti being in a church in Ethiopia.  I don't buy it.  Unless, of course, Tupac is going to be the host of the unveiling, then it's totally gonna happen.

It's odd... this was first posted on World Net Daily, a controversial/conservative but generally "accepted" news source.  Today the exact same story was posted on Weekly World News, along with their space alien and bigfoot coverage.  I can't tell if WND was fooled and picked up the WWN story, or if WWN is jumping on the bandwagon since this is something of a "supernatural" story.

I did find that the Ethiopian priest did visit the Pope this week, Adnkronos is a real news agency, and they posted this story.  But I don't know Italian...
