Rejected Turkish Pilgrims Go Home

Nearly all of the 900 Turkish pilgrims stuck in Jordan after they were refused entry into Saudi Arabia because of invalid documents have returned home. 


The pilgrims, unable to get new Hajj visas in Amman, chose to return to Turkey, leaving only a few to handle their $900,000 lawsuit, the Jordan Times Reports. They are suing travel agents in Turkey and Amman, whom they accusing of providing the false papers.
