Hajj streamlines ritual slaughter

Saudi authorities are saying that little of the 750,00 animals sacrificed at the Hajj will go to waste.


    The annual Muslim pilgrimage, the Hajj, is continuing with millions of devotees gathering for the ritual "stoning of the devil" in the last days of the Hajj.

    Part of the Hajj involves the sacrifice of animals. This year, some 750,000 animals were slaughtered during the Hajj.

    And religious authorities say they are working hard to make sure the meat does not go to waste.
