Death Rises in Saudi Arabia’s Hajj


This is a very sad incident for the pilgrims in Mecca. 

Saudi Arabia’s Prince, Muhammad Bin Nayef, blames undisciplined pilgrims for Hajj tragedy. The stampede happened during the Hajj in Mecca, 2015.

The Saudi Arabia Health Minister also blamed undisciplined pilgrims for deadly stampede saying the tragedy would not have occurred if they “had followed instructions”.

Health Minister Khaled al-Falih was quoted by El-Ekhbariya TV as saying “Many pilgrims move without respecting the timetables” established by the authorities which was the “principal reason for this type of accident”.

At least, 717 pilgrims died while another 805 were wounded in a stampede during the stoning of Satan at Mina,the Saudi civil defense said..
This is the worst disaster to occur in 25years. This tragedy comes only a few weeks after a crane collapsed at the Grand Mosque in Mecca killing 107 people during a violet windstorm.
