Hajj worshippers divided on 'selfie' craze

Some clerics frown upon pilgrims taking pictures of themselves at the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

    More than two million Muslims are in Mecca for the annual Hajj pilgrimage. But this year there seems to be a new tradition that has prompted a wave of criticism.

    Worshippers have been snapping photos of themselves - or selfies - as mementos of their trip.
