World Peace March in Dubai attracts large crowd


(Dubai) – Hundreds of people took part in the first ever Peace March led by Sheikh Mansour Bin Mohammad in Dubai. Under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammad, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the march was organised as a prelude to the second Dubai International Peace Convention (DIPC).
The march included a rally of thousands of motorbikes, cars, mounted police as well as school children and families. Heralded by a group of sky divers, who jumped from helicopters, the march started from the Dubai World Trade Centre, paraded to Mall of the Emirates and returned to Road 312, where they were welcomed by police officers with yellow roses.
