Saudi Arabia limits Hajj attendance
Saudi Arabia will hold only a "very limited" Hajj this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Only people already living in the country will be allowed to take part.

"It was decided to hold the pilgrimage this year with very limited numbers ... with different nationalities in the kingdom," the official Saudi Press Agency said on Monday, citing the Hajj ministry.

More than two million Muslims take part in the annual pilgrimage to Islam's holy city of Mecca every year. This year's event is due to take place in late July.
