The young boys queued as doctors carried out the surgery on dozens of makeshift operating tables in a stadium in Marikina city, east of Manila.

While some boys cried in their mothers' arms, others bit their shirts to stifle sobs. However, there were some who came out smiling and swelling with pride, reports the Daily Mail.

"I'm a big boy now," bragged one boy who had just finished the surgery. As a tradition, young Filippino boys are circumcised during their school summer break from March to May.

Marikina city officials hope to establish a world record for the number of people attending a mass circumcision.
