Ramadan at the White House

President Obama hosts a Ramadan dinner at the White House. Cabinet members and foreign dignataries joined the president in breaking fast this evening. Rachel Sladja covers the story for TPM:

"President Obama will hold a dinner to celebrate Ramadan tonight at the White House.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast during daylight hours. The fast is broken after sunset with a dinner, or iftar, usually as a community. Tonight's dinner will be held at 8 p.m. ET.

The dinner will also "highlight the contributions of American Muslims," according to the White House. A guest list will be released later today." Click here for the rest of the story.
