CAIRO: The Husseini area near the historic market of Khan al-Khalili is closed Wednesday for the Moulid el-Nabi holiday, marking the birthday of Prophet Muhammad.

The  General Directorate of Tourism and Antiquities will coordinate a procession from the Saleh al-Jafari mosque to the Husseini square, and tourist groups are advises against visiting the area, Youm7 reported.

Egyptians traditionally celebrate Moulid el-Nabi with sweets and dolls, and are sold on the streets for weeks before the holiday.
