Sacrificial tents

Cars wait outside a sacrificial tent in Umm Slal Mohammed, Qatar.

Sacrificial tents like this one dotted Qatar today. Any animal killed after the Eid prayers at dawn today (Eid Al-Adha) is considered a sacrifice. However, it is now illegal to kill animals anywhere other than an officially designated place, and expatriates repeatedly breaking the rule will be deported.
