Some opt to observe the sunrise and sunset times of a nearby Muslim country, but Abakar sticks to the local Rovaniemi schedule. Rovaniemi, a northern Finland town that straddles the Arctic Circle at 66 degrees north, the sun rises around 3:20 a.m. and sets about 11:20pm. That means Muslims who observe Ramadan could be required to go without food or drink for 20 hours. (AP Photo/David MacDougall)

Muslims who live in this Arctic Circle city have only a few hours each day between sunset and sunrise to break their fast during Ramadan. Some opt to observe the sunrise and sunset times of a nearby Muslim country, but Abakar sticks to the local Rovaniemi schedule. Rovaniemi, a northern Finland town that straddles the Arctic Circle at 66 degrees north, the sun rises around 3:20 a.m. and sets about 11:20pm. That means Muslims who observe Ramadan could be required to go without food or drink for 20 hours. (AP Photo/David MacDougall)
