In Cairo, the capital of Egypt, the statue of Pharaoh Ramses II is moved.
From the BBC:
It is being moved overnight to a site near the pyramids outside Cairo.
Tens of thousands of people have been watching the colossus move through the city at a stately pace on two flatbed trucks.
It is being transported in one piece.
A steel cage has been built around the statue to hold it steady.
The head of Ramses, protruding from the protective steel, has been wrapped in plastic and thick padding, but its face is visible to the crowds lining the streets to watch as it floats by.
The statue was moved because of pollution in Cairo city centre.
Good for the over three thousand year old statue that that pollution will not damage it any more.
However, doing something against that pollution would have been better.
As that would not only have benefited the statue of the long dead king, but also his living compratiots of today.
