The Algerian Moon Sighting Committee (Commission nationale d'observation du croissant lunaire) has announced that the upcoming End of Ramadan public holiday would be on Friday, September 10, 2010.

In previous years, Algeria's announced dates for Muslim public holidays often diverged from those of the Umm al-Qura Saudi Calendar, but recently the announced dates have followed the Saudi dates quite closely (2009-09-19 and 2008-09-29).
