Muslim Animal Sacrifices Fill City With Rivers of Blood

There's no violence here against anyone except animals. It's a surreal sight. Shocking in some ways. And another reminder of just how different Islamic culture is from our civilization. 

Huge swathes of animal sacrifices marking the Islamic festival Eid al-Adha turned the streets of Bangladesh's capital into rivers of blood.

Authorities in Dhaka had designated areas in the city where residents could slaughter animals, but heavy downpours Tuesday rendered them out of action. 

Instead, Muslims took to car parks, garages and alleyways to traditionally mark Eid al-Adha - or the Feast of Sacrifice - by slaughtering livestock and when the blood flowed into the streets, it turned them red. 

It's a scene out of a horror movie. And yet it's life in the Muslim world.
