"I was just terrified but I couldn't make myself move."
Women are sharing their experiences of being sexually harassed and assaulted while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.
Alaa Fowila, 21, from Egypt, was a teenager when she made Umrah.
"It was during Ramadan in 2014," she told BuzzFeed News via Facebook messenger, "during Tawaf I felt a hand squeezing my butt and I looked around to notice who it is but there were a lot of people.
"I couldn't know who it was exactly but I did doubt someone since he was smiling, but the thing is I didn't want to point at him since he was too old."
