Saudi Arabia Hajj

Muslim pilgrims pray at the rocky hill known as the Mountain of Mercy, on the Plain of Arafat, beside inscriptions which were left by pilgrims from previous years, during the annual hajj pilgrimage, near the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, Monday, July 19, 2021. The coronavirus has taken its toll on the hajj for a second year running. What once drew some 2.5 million Muslims from all walks of life from across the globe, the hajj pilgrimage is now almost unrecognizable in scale. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
