Afghans Offer Eid Al-Fitr Prayers

Afghans prayed at Kabul's Shah-e Do Shamshira Mosque on July 28 as they celebrated Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The place of worship, whose name translates as Mosque of the King of Two Swords, is located in the center of the Afghan capital, next to the tomb of an Arab commander who died in the 7th century when the Arabs entered Kabul.
