Rabat, Jan. 8 -- Videos and photos showing black crickets swarming the holy space circulated on social media since Monday night.

Viewers spread the images and videos with the hashtag #crickets (in Arabic) on Twitter, expressing disgust at the sight of crickets clinging to pilgrims' outfits and covering the walls and floors of mosque, and they demand an explanation as to where the invasive insects came from.

The Emirate Of Makkah Province released a statement on Twitter, announcing that 22 teams of 138 members were mobilized to exterminate the insects, "bearing in mind the safety and comfort of pilgrims."
