No Eid meat for Egypt’s poor

Price hikes of 20 per cent remove meat from many tables during the Muslim festival.

Eid al-Adha, the greatest Muslim festival, is supposed to be the one occasion when even the poorest can look forward to feasting on some lamb or beef after the religious rituals are over.

But with rising food prices, that is not the case for many millions of Muslims this year.

Al Jazeera’s Rawya Rageh reports from the Egyptian capital, Cairo, where meat prices are leaving many without anything to celebrate.
