    Hundreds of thousands of Muslim pilgrims have been arriving at Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for the end of the Hajj pilgrimage.

    Arriving on foot, by bus and by train, they came from from nearby Mina where most had spent the night following in the footsteps of Prophet Mohammed 14 centuries ago.

    There are about two million Muslims taking part in Hajj , the numbers down on last year.
