"Reuters" said, "This great procession will witness the transfer of 22 royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat, the ancient capital of Egypt during the period of the Umayyad rule after the Arab conquest."

And she continued, "These are the kings of Egypt, these are the pharaohs, and so they will be transferred in a way that shows their status and the extent of their respect."

She explained that 22 ancient Egyptian mummies will be transferred in capsules specially designed for mummies to a new museum so that they can be displayed more beautifully.

She indicated that the Egyptian authorities would block a number of roads along the Nile River in preparation for this majestic event.

Reuters published statements by archaeologist Zahi Hawass, in which he stated that each mummy will be placed in a special capsule filled with nitrogen to ensure protection, and the capsules will be carried on vehicles designed to be carried.

She concluded that the show will include the transfer of the mummies of Ramses II, Seti I, Ahmose, Nefertari and other mummies of the ancient kings of Egypt.
