    Syrians shop at the Hamidiyah market for clothes, shoes, candies and other celebratory items on Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013 in the run-up to Eid al-Adh, or "feast of sacrifice." This is the third Eid al-Adha in Syria since an uprising started as mostly peaceful anti-Bashar Assad demonstrations in March 2011, inspired by the Arab Spring. After activists were violently targeted, it morphed into an armed uprising and civil war. The conflict has killed over 100,000 people, forced over 2 million to flee to neighboring countries, and displaced another 5 million within Syria. (AP Photo)
