Military plays music and attempts to distribute gifts in Cairo

In celebration of Easter and Sinai Liberation Day, a military band affiliated with the armed forces offered musical entertainment in Cairo's squares. Music started at 10 am in Tahrir Square.

Passersby gathered around a cordon set up by military police, inside which the band performed music including famous patriotic songs. People took photos with military leaders, who greeted citizens and said the music will continue until sunset.

Military leaders offered the citizens gifts such as clocks and small radio sets, but left when people gathered around so military police could secure the vehicles carrying the gifts. When this failed the vehicles left after 15 minutes. Some citizens were able to grab gifts.
