Algeria will celebrate the the Eid al-Fitr festivities marking the end of Ramadan on Wednesday, a committee at the religious affairs ministry announced.

The Islamic calendar is a lunar one, and most Muslim countries set the beginning of Eid al-Fitr by the sighting of the new moon.

During Ramadan, observant Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and sex between dawn and sundown each day, after which they break their fast in what is known as iftar.
