MECCA, August 8,2013 (AA)
Around two million Muslims performed their Eid prayer at Masjid al-Haram in the sacred city of Mecca on the first day of Eid al-Fitr marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
Amid strict security measures, King Abdollah of Saudi Arabia along with several high ranking Saudi officials were present at the Eid prayer at Masjid al-Haram, the largest mosque in the world surrounding one of Islam’s holiest places, the Kaaba.
As of midnight, Muslims rushed to the masjid, filling up all the four stories of the Masjid al-Haram around al Kaaba before the morning prayer.
