Eid al-Adha around the world

Muslims around the world are celebrating on Friday Eid al-Kabir, literally meaning the "great feast," which is also called Eid al-Adha (meaning the "feast of sacrifice").

The festival also corresponds to the end of pilgrimage to Mecca, the Hajj, which more than two million Muslims are attending this week.

Eid al-Adha is celebrated from the tenth day of the lunar month of dhou al hijja, and lasts three days.
