  • Description

    One of the major Moslem feasts, derived from the old Testament legend of Abraham's test of faith and the sacrifice of a sheep in place of his son. Each Moslem family that can afford it sacrifice a lamb or a sheep on this day. In Rabat after prayers at the Mosque H.M.Mahamed V sacrifices the traditional beast.

    It was on the eve of this ceremony that during the French occupation the Sultam was exiled by the French,a double humiliation which was most keenly felt by the Moroccan people.

    Alltho' this may not be International news I have covered it as it is of course a unique ceremony,and was covered by all the stringers here.
