SAUDI ARABIA: Declaration of intent

December 20, 2007 |  1:57 am

Here's a quick video clip showing our Southern California pilgrim group in their tent on Mr Arafat. Here, Imam Moustafa Al Qazwini is leading the group through their statement of intent to carry out the noon-to-sunset prayer vigil.

Apologies for the amateur quality of the video and for that annoying bit of dangling rope that I didn't notice when I was filming.
