Coronavirus lockdowns bring Eid celebrations around the world to a halt


Muslims around the world began marking a sombre Eid al-Fitr Sunday, many under coronavirus lockdown but lax restrictions offer respite to worshipers in some countries despite fears of skyrocketing infections. The festival ? one of the most important in the Muslim calendar marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan ? is traditionally celebrated with mosque prayers, family feasts and shopping for new clothes, gifts, and sweet treats.
