A moderate aftershock rattled the Middle East on Thursday, and caretakers of the Great Pyramids at Giza discovered that the previous day's deadly quake has spread slight cracks in a 5,000-year-old burial chamber. The 20-second, magnitude-5.4 aftershock was centered south of the Israeli resort of Eilat on the Gulf of Aqaba, the same as the original quake Wednesday, Israel's Institute for Petroleum Research and Geophysics said.
