Muslims celebrate end of Ramadan
Muslims around the world have been celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday, a time for family and feasting, to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan and its daytime fasting.
Businesses closed across the Muslim world, as people dressed up and visited relatives, enjoying their first daytime meals in a lunar month. Mosques held special prayers at sunrise, and children received gifts or a special allowance.
The holiday lasts one to three days, and is eagerly anticipated after the month of fasting.
During Ramadan, the faithful refrain from eating, drinking, smoking or sexual activity from dawn to dusk, with even a small sip of water enough to invalidate the fast, which is one of the five pillars of Islam.
For the world's 1.5 billion Muslims, Eid al-Fitr is second only to Eid al-Adha, which comes around two months later.
Here is a selection of Eid al-Fitr photos from around the world.
