Pyramids of Egypt have been closed this evening for fear of Masonic rituals

Friday, 11 November 2011

Cairo, Egypt. According to APMR's Foreign Affairs Chancellery today was scheduled a Masonic Concert on the plateau of Giza, near the Great Pyramid of Khufu. Officials in Cairo adopted a relatively bizarre decision on the closure of the pyramids to avoid the practice of Masonic rituals and also to avoid the concert.

However in the closure process of the Egyptian pyramids are involved several institutions: Pharaonic Archaeology Department, Supreme Council of Antiquities and the Ministry of Interior. Several Egyptian organizations (including the Muslim Brotherhood) have protested and rejected the possibility of conducting any Masonic ritual within the pyramids. The Supreme Council of Antiquities and the Giza Governorate confirmed that the Masonic ceremony was canceled but that the pyramids remain temporarily closed.
