Xinjiang offers discount meat ahead of major festival

To celebrate Saturday’s Eid al-Fitr, or the Feast of Breaking the Fast, authorities in northwest China’s Xinjiang have began selling discount meat to residents.

The meat was priced between 40 to 44 yuan per kilogram, which is 10 to 15 yuan cheaper than market prices. It’s a long-held tradition for Xinjiang authorities to supply cheap meat prior to such large festivals.
