Muslims across the world celebrate Eid al-Fitr with masks and prayers, as conflicts and Covid-19 restrictions cast shadows over the festival’s mass gatherings and family reunions.
The three-day festival, which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, is traditionally celebrated with mosque prayers, family feasts and shopping for new clothes, gifts and sweets.
However, casting a pall on the festival, already subdued due to the raging pandemic, was deadly violence between Israel and Palestinians, with fears growing that it could spiral into full-blown conflict.
