• U.S. Embassy in Manila closed Tuesday for Eid’l Fitr


    The Embassy of the United States in Manila announced that it will be closed to the public on Tuesday, in observance of Eid’l Fitr.

    It will resume office Wednesday.

    It is celebrated by devout Muslims worldwide for three days after the end of the month of fasting.
