Heavy rains in Mecca cause torrents
Heavy rains and thunderstorms forced pilgrims in Saudi Arabia’s Mecca on Sunday (19 August) to take cover in tents and trudge through puddles, with civil defence warning of possible flooding throughout the evening.

The Saudi news agency said the heavy rain could cause torrents, while meteorologists expected the extreme weather and strong winds to continue until Monday afternoon. 

Worshippers arrived in the Saudi kingdom last week for the five-day ritual -- a once-in-a-lifetime religious duty for every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it, which retraces the route Prophet Mohammad took 14 centuries ago.
