  • Description

    Sudan's President Jaafar elONimery is in Saudi Arabia for the Moslem pilgrimage to Mecca.

    On Thursday (19 December) he met with Saudi Arabia's King Faisal and discussed a number of topics of mutual interest. Heading the agenda was the price of crude oil -- Sudan has no oil of its own -- and the possibility of increased Saudi Arabian aid to Sudan's industry and agriculture.

    Hundreds of thousands of Moslem pilgrims visit Mecca -- near the Red Sea port of Jeddah -- every year. Mecca is the holiest city of Islam and is the birthplace of the Prophet Mohammed.

    Every Moslem should make the pilgrimage (the 'Haj') at least once in his life. Mecca is the centre of faith for all Moslems, who turn towards it as they pray ... as often as five times a day.
