Muslims hold annual parade in Manhattan
The march, which began on Madison Avenue between East 24th and East 26th Street in Manhattan, drew Muslims from many nationalities that live in the US.
The marchers carried U.S., Turkish and Pakistani flags, among others, and chanted takbir, Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest). The parade also featured trucks carrying models of the Ka'bah and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem's al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
The marchers also held a food festival and got a taste of cultural and musical performances.
