IMAGES – When the Muslim world celebrates Eid el-Fitr

Around the world, Muslims gathered from dawn to dusk to celebrate Eid al-Fitr and mark the end of Ramadan. Millions of people with family, friends or strangers, in the streets and in mosques, gathered for the first day of the festivities to pray or simply celebrate this holy day of the Muslim calendar.
