Indonesians gathered to commemorate a sombre Eid al-Adha festival despite efforts to stop mass gatherings as coronavirus deaths surge.

This week marks the second time during the pandemic that the world's biggest Muslim-majority nation has celebrated the Feast of Sacrifice, which signals the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

Authorities have banned large crowds, including at traditional events that feature the sacrifice of livestock, and urged the public not to gather for acts of religious worship.
