Australian Muslims celebrate end of Ramadan

Muslims across Australia filled mosques this week to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan.  It was cold and raining in Sydney on Thursday morning but that didn't stop the faithful from filling the Lakemba mosque.  Roads around the mosque were blocked off to allow the congregation to spill onto the street.

Lakemba mosque is one of the largest mosques in Australia and is owned and managed by the Lebanese Moslems Association.
