Porong, Indonesia, October 13, 2007—Muslim women on the Indonesian island of Java offer prayers in the morning to mark the start of the Islamic feast Eid-al-Fitr.

The event is a three-day celebration that occurs at the end of Ramadan, signaling the official breaking of Muslim's month of fasting.

The festival in Porong went forward despite continued troubles caused by a severe ''mud volcano'' that erupted on Java in January.

The disaster destroyed thousands of houses, leaving about 11,000 people homeless.
