As Muslims prepare to celebrate the festival of Eid al-Adha, Libyans are complaining of a huge jump in the price of sheep.
Muslims offer a ritual sacrifice of a sheep during Eid and distribute some of its meat to those less fortunate. This year, many are saying they cannot afford to buy a lamb to slaughter.
