The world's first exhibition on Hajj - the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca - opens this week at the British Museum.

After years of negotiations with 13 countries, rare artefacts from Islam's holiest sites have been brought to London.

The BBC's Almeena Ahmed has been talking to Qaisra Khan, curator of Hajj: Journey to the heart of Islam, and artist Ahmed Mater.
