British Muslims are being priced out of the Hajj


Around 3m pilgrims are marking the annual Hajj to Saudi Arabia, amid concerns that rising costs have left some British Muslims unable to make the journey.

The price of travel has risen in some cases from £1,400 to about £4,000 or £5,000.

The BBC's Robert Pigott reports.
