    Hundreds of farmers and buyers come from all over Sudan to the El Molih market, one of the biggest dromedary markets in Africa. Most of the animals are sold for their meat, but the most expensive dromedaries are used for transport or even racing. Bartering can be a tough business, with stiff competition for the best animals. Our colleagues at France 2 report, with FRANCE 24's Wassim Cornet.
