Children have been making the most of the Muslim festival, despite their harsh living conditions.

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has been battling a four-year uprising against his government, has participated in Eid prayers at a mosque in Damascus.

    The conflict has caused millions of Syrians to seek refuge in neighbouring countries.
