MECCA: Saudi Arabia is gearing up for next week’s hajj with scores of pilgrims set to miss the world’s largest annual gathering over construction work and fears about a deadly virus. Last year a total of 3.2 million faithful, including 1.75 million foreigners, performed the pilgrimage to Mecca, Islam’s holiest site. Those from abroad came from 190 countries.
