  • Description

    Hundreds of Moslems attended communal prayers in the open-air in Niamey on Thursday (27 Jan), and took part in the sacrificial rites of the three-day Feast of Tabaski, the major Feast of the Moslem calendar.

    In Niger as in other Moslem countries a sheep is sacrificed, as seen in this film, to commemorate the willingness of the Patriarch Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac.

    The Feast of Tabaski, or Id Al-Kabir as it is known elsewhere, is generally celebrated after the annual pilgrimage by Moslems to Mecca.
