Wearing white robes to symbolise purity and equality under God, (m) millions of Muslims continued their annual pilgrimage on Sunday in the Saudi holy city of Mina for the stoning of Satan, the last and most dangerous rite of the annual Hajj.
To complete their rituals, pilgrims must throw 21 pebbles at each of three 25-metre (82-foot) pillars that represent Satan in a symbolic rejection of temptation.
Hundreds of people have been killed in stampedes in several previous pilgrimages to the sites when the pilgrims cast pebbles at the pillars.
On Sunday, the military was helping maintain security to avoid any accidents.
So far this year, no major incidents have been reported among the pilgrims.
The Mashair Railway, also known as the Mecca Metro, a two-track light railway connecting the three holy sites of Mina, Muzdalifah and Mount Arafat, was operating for the first time this year to ease congestion.
Some 2.5 (m) million people were expected to take part in the five-day event that started on Saturday.
This year's hajj takes place amid an unprecedented wave of anti-government protests in the Arab world which has toppled autocrats in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.
Uprisings have also shaken regimes in Yemen, Bahrain and Syria.
While Muslims see the hajj as a time to seek forgiveness for one's sins and for individual meditation on the faith, the unrest across the region remained at the forefront of the minds of many pilgrims.
Hajj is the oldest and most sacred ritual of Islam that every able-bodied Muslim who can financially afford the trip must perform once in a lifetime.
The pious journey brings together the many nations that make up the 1.3 (b) billion Muslims worldwide.
The day also marked the start of the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, or "Feast of Sacrifice", when Muslims around the world slaughter sheep and cattle in remembrance of Abraham's near-sacrifice of his son.
