Father and son offer prayers to loved ones killed by volcano

An Indonesian man and his son crouch to pray on dried volcanic mud on Aug. 7 after offering flowers for family members who died during a volcano eruption in Sidoarjo on the island of Java seven years ago. Indonesians are marking Eid al-Fitr with pilgrimages to cemeteries to remember their dead.

The disaster in 2006 killed 12 people, displaced nearly 50,000 and buried 13 villages.
