Muslim pilgrims continue ritual

From Times Wire Reports

More than 2 million Muslim pilgrims, mostly on foot, streamed down to Muzdalifah near Mecca, where hajj tradition says they should spend the night.

Many carried their belongings on their backs, and some pushed relatives in wheelchairs.

Earlier, pilgrims spent the day at Mt. Arafat, a sacred zone outside Mecca where the prophet Muhammad gave his last sermon 1,400 years ago.
