310 Pilgrims Die In Stampede In Saudi Arabia

A stampede has occurred at the annual hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia killing 310 people. The country’s civil defence confirmed that at the least 400 people got injured. Real reasons for the stampede is still unclear.

Pilgrims had gathered at Mina for the symbolic throwing of ‘stone at the devil’, which marks the last day of the pilgrim when the ugly incident occurred.

Recall that in 2006, 364 pilgrims were killed during a stoning ritual in Mina.
