Iran bans Saudi imports, pilgrimages to Mecca

on Fri Jan 08, 2016 12:15 am
Iran has banned all imports from Saudi Arabia and told Iranians they can't join pilgrimages to its holy cities of Mecca and Medina, according to CNN.

The announcement Thursday follows Saudi Arabia's decision to break off diplomatic and economic ties with Iran after its embassy in Tehran was attacked, CNN reports.

Saudi Arabia doesn't rank among Iran's top trading partners but the ban on pilgrimages could hurt: it makes around $18 billion a year from religious tourism, and Iranians comprise one of the biggest groups of visitors.

Officials estimate around 600,000 Iranians travel to Saudi Arabia every year to perform pilgrimages. Some flights between the two countries have already been suspended..........
