The pandemic is curtailing Eid al-Fitr celebrations around the world.

The Islamic festival that marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan is normally a time of feasting and family gatherings. But this year millions of Muslims around the world are being urged to stay at home.

Saudi Arabia has ordered a complete lockdown during the festival. Here a worshipper at the Grand Mosque in Mecca offers sweets to security guards
