Muslims mark Eid and final days of hajj in Saudi Arabia
In Mina, pilgrims spend the final days of hajj throwing pebbles at a pillar in a symbolic casting away of evil. The massive tent city of Mina is where the deadliest hajj disasters have occurred, including a 2015 stampede and crush that killed more than 2,400 people.
To mark the completion of the hajj, male pilgrims shaved their hair and women trimmed theirs on Saturday to represent a spiritual renewal and rebirth.
Muslims around the world are commemorating the end of hajj with Eid celebrations, including distributing meat to the poor.
