Swedish Muslims face daylight fast challenge
by James Savage
Sweden's long summer days are presenting a challenge to Muslims fasting for Ramadan, which starts on Wednesday. Religious leaders say the long hours of daylight are not a good excuse to skip the fast.
Things are set to get even more challenging in 2015, when the fast will fall in June.
During the month-long fast, Muslims refrain from eating, drinking and sex between daybreak and sunset. While this is a challenge for people everywhere, in Sweden it presents particular challenges.
