RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia's high court declared on Saturday that Nov. 15 will be the start of hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Islam's holy site.

The kingdom's official SPA news agency said the court had confirmed the sighting of the new moon Saturday. According to the lunar calendar, hajj begins nine days into the 12th month of the year — making the start Nov. 15 this year in the Gregorian calendar.
