Egypt last week established a new Guinness World Record with the longest line of tables on the planet.

Covering no less than 4,303 metres, a total of 3,106 tables were set up along the seafront of the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, the Guinness World Record authority announced on Thursday.

The event took place on the evening of 26 June, during the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast from dawn till dusk.

Around 800 volunteers took part in the event, which saw thousands break their fast with free-of-charge Iftar meals on the now longest table in the globe.

Dozens of donors and businessmen made contributions to the event.
