Muslims End Ramadan, Celebrate Eid - 2004-11-15


Millions of Muslims around the world are celebrating Eid al-Fitr -- the three day holiday that breaks the fast of the holy month of Ramadan.

Different countries begin the celebration on different days, depending on when they see the new moon. Indonesia, which has more Muslims than any other country, began the holiday Sunday, and millions of people traveled from cities to their home towns and villages to celebrate with their families.

In the Middle East, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon also began the Eid feast Sunday. Saudi Arabia and many of its neighbors started the celebration on Saturday.

In the disputed Himilayan region of Kashmir, thousands of people gathered at a mosque (in Srinagar) Sunday to mark Eid with prayers for peace.

Many Muslims begin the Eid with special prayers before sunrise, before celebrating with family and friends.
