MANILA, Philippines – Thousands of Filipino Muslims observed the Feast of Sacrifice, or Eid'l Adha, on Saturday to remember the prophet Abraham, who sacrificed his own son to honor God.

The feast also marks the 10th day of Haj, when Muslims across the globe make a pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

In Cotabato City, the Eid'l Adha festivities included prayers for peace in Mindanao and the success of the Bangsamoro government. -- ANC Headlines, October 5, 2014.
