Muslims around the world gathered today for Eid al-Fitr, the end of the holy month of Ramadan. After a month of sunrise-to-sunset fasting, groups of Muslims gathered in cities around the world for prayer and celebration.

While some large gatherings took place in beautiful parks, mosques and public squares, others met under less peaceful or fortunate circumstances. Gazans prayed only a few hundred yards from their heavily armed fence with Israel, while Afghans met in the midst of ceasefire declared between the government and the Taliban.
