Afghanistan's President Ashraf Ghani announced today a temporary ceasefire for Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that caps off the holy month of Ramadan, though it was not immediately clear if the Taliban had agreed.

The ceasefire will last "from the 27th of Ramadan until the fifth day of Eid-ul-Fitr," the president tweeted from an official account.

The 27th day of Ramadan is set for Monday, June 11 while the fifth day of Eid should fall on June 15.
