SPA Transmits to the World Pilgrims’ Journey in Six Languages
Mina, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the mouthpiece of the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which hosts of the event attracting nearly three million pilgrims from all over the Islamic countries and communities, is set to transmit to the entire world the details of the Hajj journey through its state-of-the-art news, reports, image, video, and infographic coverage for the pilgrims' trek including their departure from home to arrival in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as their visits to Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah-based Prophet's Holy Mosque, Makkah-based Grand Mosque and the holy sites on the outskirts of the two holy cities, until their return back home.
SPA addresses the world through its website WWW.SPA.GOV.SA in six languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Persian and Russian as well as multiple accounts on social networks.
These efforts come within the framework of the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and HRH Crown Prince to take care of pilgrims and provide them with all services to enable them perform their rituals in comfort and tranquility.
SPA has launched three icons on its website, the first is dedicated to the news broadcast, the second provides photo coverage, and the third casts light on the newly-introduced "Makkah Road Initiative", designed to finish pilgrims' travel, immigration and customs procedures at home before heading for the sacred places to perform Islam's fifth optional pillar in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
