Raw: Muslims begin Saudi Hajj pilgrimage

About 2 million Muslims have begun the annual Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, unperturbed by a 2015 stampede which killed more than 2,000 people.

The pilgrims face new safety measures, including tighter security and ID bracelets, in a bid to prevent a repeat of last year’s disaster.

The pilgrimage is among the largest religious gatherings in the world.
