Top Frames: Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha, Modi’s US tour, Pope Francis visits US

Eid al-Adha marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to the Mecca. The trip to Silicon Valley forms part of Narendra Modi’s visit to the US’ west coast – the first by an Indian prime minister in more than three decades.
