A rarely-celebrated Muslim circumcision ceremony has drawn hundreds of people to the village of Ribnovo in southwestern Bulgaria.
They have gathered for a four-day festival of feasting, music and ritual.
The picturesque, yet sleepy village of Ribnovo, nestled high in the Rodopes Mountains, is unusually vibrant during the first week of December.
A rarely-observed four-day Muslim circumcision ritual, called a syunet, has drawn hundreds of people from the southwestern corner of Bulgaria to this tiny village.
Around 50 babies and young boys are to be circumcised.
He will proceed through the village ahead of the ceremony.
