Images of the Hajj
Saudi authorities say about 3.4 million pilgrims have made the Hajj to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina for this year's pilgrimage.
Muslim pilgrims cast stones at a pillar, symbolizing the stoning of Satan, in a ritual called "Jamarat," a rite of the annual hajj, the Islamic faith's most holy pilgrimage, in Mina near the Saudi holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, on Oct. 26, 2012. The five-day rituals of Hajj began on Oct. 24 when millions arrived in the holy city. (Associated Press)
