Day break in Indonesia and Muslims across the country are gathering for morning prayers to mark Eid al-Fitr, the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan. Some 3,000 people gathered at a mosque in Jakarta- the capital of the world's largest Muslim nation. Eid is celebrated on different days in various Muslim countries depending on when the new moon is first observed. In Malaysia, where the festival is widely known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri, a mosque in Kuala Lumpur was filled with the faithful. Nearly 60 percent of the country's 28 million people practice Islam. After morning prayers, many people visit cemeteries to pay their respects at the graves of deceased family members.
