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
morning.

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.
