APTOPIX Mideast Saudi Hajj
Muslim pilgrims walk to cast stones at pillars, symbolizing the stoning of Satan, in a ritual called "Jamarat," a rite of the annual hajj, in Mina near the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013. More than 2 million pilgrims _ about 1 million fewer than last year _ are performing the hajj, a central pillar of Islam and one that able-bodied Muslims must make once in their lives as a four-day spiritual cleansing based on centuries of interpretation of the traditions of Prophet Muhammad.
