KABUL (PAJHWOK): Around 23,000 people have been transported to Saudi Arabia and more than 1,000 others would be shifted by the weekend for performing Hajj, the deputy minister said on Monday.

Deputy Minister of Hajj Dayee ul Haq Abid said Hajj flights from Balkh, Herat, Kandahar and Kabul provinces offered pilgrims better services. Around 1,200 Haj pilgrims will be airlifted by Thursday.

He claimed the ministry has made better accommodation, health, transport and guidance arrangements for Haj pilgrims in Saudi Arabia. The Hajj cost declined from $3050 to $ 2700.
