Thousands of people scrambled to Dhaka’s ferry terminals and train stations on Monday June 3 and Tuesday June 4 in hopes of returning home for Eid, Euronews reports.

Around 20 million people live in Dhaka because of work and leave the capital to celebrate holidays with their families in their hometowns.

In Bangladesh, Eid-al-Fitr is expected on Wednesday June 5, depending on the sighting of the moon.

Eid is a major festival in the Muslim calendar to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan, with family and friends gathering to mark the holiday.
