The remains of a mudbrick pyramid that belonged to Khay, one of Ramses II's viziers, has been found at Luxor in Egypt.

Archaeologists say they have discovered the remains of a large pyramid built in honour of a prominent advisor to Pharoah Ramses II in the 19th dynasty.

The 12-metre structure, which is thought to have reached 15-metres, was found in Egypt by a team of scientists from the Free University of Brussels and the Universite de Liege in Belgium.
