MINA- Hajj rituals began with the convergence of the faithful in the tent city of Mina in Saudi Arabia.

Governor Makkah Prince Mishaal bin Abdullah said all preparations are complete for Hajj.

Saudi Minister of Municipal and Rural Affairs Prince Mansour bin Miteb said the newly expanded Jamrat bridge in Mina would help pilgrims perform the "Satan-stoning" ritual easily without risk of being stampeded. Over two million pilgrims will perform Hajj this year.
