AP PHOTOS: Confined Moroccans find new ways to celebrate Eid
CASABLANCA Morocco (AP) — Instead of mass prayers and family gatherings, millions of Moroccan Muslims celebrated Eid Al-Fitr indoors because of their country’s newly extended coronavirus lockdown. The mood was somber for the normally joyous holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. But it was also mixed with gratitude that Morocco has so far been spared a dramatic virus outbreak. Muslims around the world adapted the religious festival due to social distancing and life under confinement. In Casablanca, police tasked with enforcing the lockdown guarded deserted streets. One family greeted loved ones over video calls, and took a trip to their roof overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
