Haj 2011 live video updates

Makkah: YouTube and the Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information are teaming up to provide a live-stream of the annual Haj pilgrimage to Mecca.
“Millions of people from around the world will be able to experience and comment on the event by tuning in via video,” the Google-owned video-sharing site said in a blog post.
This year’s Haj—an event that is likely to attract close to 2.5 million worshippers—will be live on the Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information’s YouTube channel.
Google is working with the Saudi Ministry again after the two partnered to broadcast Islamic prayers from the Holy Mosque in Mecca live during Ramadan for the first time earlier this year.
Muslim pilgrims began the rites of the Haj on Friday, leaving Mecca for Mount Arafat, where the Prophet Mohammed is believed to have delivered his final hajj sermon.
