Pandemic overshadows Eid al-Adha celebrations

World Today


Muslims across the U.S. were celebrating a scaled down Eid al-Adha festival for the second year running as the COVID-19 Delta variant sweeps the country.

Eid falls at the same time this year as the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.

But many Muslims here in the U.S. are also unable to participate.
