Motorists and public utility vehicles were unable to pass through the usually busy thoroughfare in Manila earlier in the day as the INC distributed “goodwill bags” to thousands of people who lined up the streets for hours.

The Supreme Court and other courts in Manila earlier decided to cancel their scheduled hearings for the day due to the traffic jam.
