Muslims in Asia marked a grim Eid al-Fitr on Monday, overshadowed by several air tragedies, including the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, and conflicts in Gaza and Pakistan.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai in his message for Eid, the most important festival for Muslims marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, said the Islamic world was suffering.

"Hundreds of people are being killed every day in Islamic countries," he said, highlighting the plight of those in war-torn Gaza.
