Cameroon: Eid al-Fitr (end of Ramadan) June 24-25

Muslims in Cameroon to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, on Sunday, June 24-25

22 juin 12h25 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 22/6/2017, 12h00 until 27/6/2017, 11h59 (Africa/Douala). COUNTRY/REGION Cameroon

Event

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which began on May 27, is likely to come to an end at sundown on Saturday, June 24, or Sunday, June 25 (depending on the moon). During this time, normal operations and opening hours may be affected in Muslim-majority areas as Muslims gather to pray and celebrate with family and friends in observation of Eid al-Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan. While practices vary by area, Eid al-Fitr celebrations are likely to have an impact on many businesses, stock exchanges, and services (including administrative services) that will close or significantly reduce their hours of operation on Sunday evening and potentially into the coming days. As this period is typically marked by increased travel, heavy road traffic after sundown along with other transportation disruptions (crowded airports, etc.) is to be anticipated.

Context

Eid al-Fitr celebrates the conclusion of 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting and remains one of the most important dates on the Muslim calendar. Generally speaking, the month of Ramadan is historically marred by a significant increase in terrorist threats and as such there is a potential for attacks to be carried out during Eid celebrations.

Advice

Individuals in Cameroon are advised to allow for additional travel time, to remain vigilant, and to avoid large public gatherings.
