Annual Hajj rituals begin with arrival of pilgrims in Mina

By

MAKKAH: With the arrival of pilgrims, the annual Hajj ceremony began in Mecca today (Sunday).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, no foreign pilgrims were allowed to perform hajj again this year.

Saudi Arabia has restricted the number of pilgrims to a maximum of 60,000 vaccinated citizens and residents between 18 and 65 years old.

Last year, only as many as 10,000 Saudi citizens and residents were allowed to make the annual pilgrimage.
