Jeddah, (IINA) - Acting US Consul General Michael Longhauser greeted a group of Hajj pilgrims from the US at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, Arab News reported Monday.

The group consisted of approximately 600 pilgrims from the US who were fulfilling their individual religious obligations to undertake the Hajj.

Consulate personnel reminded the pilgrims that they offer American citizen services to assist pilgrims during their stay.

Pilgrims were encouraged to visit the US Mission Saudi Arabia's special webpage, which is devoted entirely to information for the over 15,000 American citizens traveling this year to perform Hajj.
