Egyptian camel vendors take part during an auction at the camel market in Birqash, Giza, 25 km,16 miles north of Cairo, Egypt on Aug.19, 2016. Traders come from different countries including Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia to sell camels ahead of Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, to commemorate the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim - or Abraham as he is known in the Bible - to sacrifice his son in accordance with God's will, though in the end God provides him a sheep to sacrifice instead, where able Muslims offer either a goat, sheep, cow, buffalo, or camel during the feast rituals.
