Millions of Muslim pilgrims worldwide perform the last major ritual of Hajj

Muslims around the world are marking the first day of the Eid al-Adha or feast of sacrifice on Sunday.
They traditionally sacrifice a sheep and give the meat to the poor.
The faithful focus on placing God before themselves, recalling Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son in submission to the Almighty.

It’s an emotional day too for pilgrims in Mina, near Mecca. They have started the final rituals of their Hajj.
Extreme heat has been a challenge for pilgrims.
