Hajj pilgrims defy floods

Hajj pilgrims defy floods
Muslim pilgrims gather at Mount Arafat, southeast of the Saudi city of Mecca on November 26. Some 2.5 million Muslims from more than 160 countries converge annually on the Islamic cities of Mecca and Medina in western Saudi Arabia for the hajj pilgrimage. The first day of the hajj has been affected due to heavy rainfall causing floods that claimed the lives of at least 48 people. (All photos - Getty Images)
