Families of the victims of the Christchurch mosque masacre have arrived in Jeddah for Hajj.
They are special guests of King Salman
The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman, hosts thousands of people, personally himself, for Hajj and this year over 200 of them are families of the tragic New Zealand mosque massacre.
Families of the victims of the massacre in Christchurch mosques were accorded a warm welcome as their first batch arrived at King Abdelaziz International Airport in Jeddah on Friday.
The guests were welcomed at the airport with flowers, dates, Zamzam bottles and other gifts
As many as 1,516,101 pilgrims have arrived in the Kingdom from various parts of the world to perform the Haj this year. Other guests receiving an invitation from King Salman himself include 2000 kin of those who have been killed in Palestine.
