SSS 55555

MAKKAH, August 11 (DNA): Around 2.5 million Hujjaj, who spent night
under open sky in Muzdalfa moved to Mina after Eid prayers on Sunday

At the dawn of the first day of Eid al-Adha – the third day of Hajj,
Hajj pilgrims sacrified animals and walked together to Jamarat Al-Aqaba
in Mina.

It is at this site the pilgrims throw seven pebbles at a wall in a
ritual that symbolizes the stoning of the Satan.

There are three pillars at the site – only one was open on Sunday – the
other two will be opened for the ceremony over the following two days.
