Thieves caught on video stealing from pilgrims at Prophet’s Mosque

This video uploaded on Youtube by a user named Alzahrani Azez shows thieves preying on sleeping pilgrims at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah. Despite the installation of CCTVs in many corners of the Prophet’s Mosque and the Grand Mosque in Makkah, as well as the often-publicized arrest of thieves caught in the act of stealing inside the two holy mosques, incidents of pilgrims losing their personal belongings to pickpockets continue.
