While in Manila More than 1.5 million people converged on the Philippine capital Monday for a powerful Christian sect’s evangelical event, causing traffic chaos that shut down large parts of the megacity. 
The gathering of the secretive and politically influential Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in the historic district of Manila forced all schools and some government offices to close. 
  • Between two and three million people attended the event either as a church follower or aid recipient, according to Manila’s police chief, Isagani Genade. 
  • The organisers estimated the crowd at between 1.5 million and two million people. The event is one of many ostentatious displays of faith in the mainly Catholic Philippines, where religious leaders also wield heavy political influence. 
  • However, not everyone attending was celebrating. Several people fainted due to the heat, while others simply gave up in frustration. 
  • In a square fronting Manila’s central post office, tempers frayed during the fierce afternoon heat as men, women and children jostled while waiting for medical care offered by the group.
