The European Islamic Council--an umbrella organisation for Muslim communities on the continent--marked the start of the New Year with a reception. It was attended by around 250 Islamic religious leaders and diplomats. They were given a break-down of the plans for the Islamic New Year by the Secretary General of the Islamic council in Europe, Salem Azzam.
