Ramadan in Jordan will start on Tuesday, the country’s mufti said on Monday.

Abdulkarim Al Khasawneh said a religious council “briefed on the results of an investigation of the crescent [moon] of Ramadan affirmed that tomorrow, Tuesday, is the first day of the holy month".

Mr Al Khasawneh said he hoped that Ramadan would bring "goodness and blessing" and remove "pandemic and harm".
