Security Boosted for Annual Hajj Pilgrimage
Published in: Los Angeles Times
January 17, 2005

Saudi Arabia says it is ready to play host to more than 2 million pilgrims for this year's hajj after tightening security in an effort to ensure the annual Muslim rite passes without incident.

Authorities want to thwart possible attacks by Al Qaeda, political protests by pilgrims, and stampedes of the kind that killed about 250 people last year.
