The holiday, celebrated by Muslims worldwide, marks the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

Here in Addis Ababa, Muslims celebrated the day, through prayers at the Addis Ababa Stadium starting from early in the morning.

Mufti Haji Omar Idris, President of Ethiopian Islamic Affaire Supreme Council and Takele Uma, Deputy Mayor of Addis Ababa attended the celebration.
