Muslims around the world celebrate Eid

People around the world have been celebrating Eid al-Fitr, one of Islam’s two major holidays.

The “festival of the breaking of the fast” begins when the moon rises on the final day of Ramadan, a holy month of fasting.

The timing varies from country to country, with some following the moonrise in Mecca and others using local sightings.

After a sighting of the first crescent of the new moon, a three-day festival is held in celebration.
