Broken promises for Hajj Pakistanis

Pilgrims happy to be in Mecca but saddened by the treatment they received from their own government.

    The Hajj is a journey of a lifetime for Muslims from all over the world.

    This year, around 2.8 million pilgrims have gathered in Mecca, many spending their life savings on the trip.

    But for one group of Pakistanis, the challenge has been especially difficult, because of what they say are broken promises.
