Angry butchers in Muharraq are planning an indefinite strike from today over claims they have been sidelined in the distribution of up to 5,000 live sheep in the build-up to Eid Al Adha.

They are sharpening their knives over reports the animals have been snapped up by Islamic societies, which plan to slaughter them and sell the meat during the religious festival.

Butchers are still being supplied chilled meat by the Bahrain Livestock Company, six weeks after first threatening to go on strike over the quality of supplies.

They want to serve up the more popular fresh meat from animals that have been slaughtered in Bahrain, but there has been a shortage after the Municipalities and Urban Planning Affairs Ministry turned away almost 21,000 live Australian sheep at the end of August saying they were contaminated.
