Daily Sun gathered that the items the pilgrims were made to leave behind at the Jeddah International Airport included computer laptops, perfumes and electronics.

The affected pilgrims feared that security reasons were adduced to seize the items. Meanwhile, the Presidential Committee on the 2006 Haji (PCH), it was learnt, has protested the development to the Saudi authorities.
