MECCA, Saudi Arabia – The death toll from a stampede during the annual haj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia on Thursday has risen to 717 people of various nationalities, the Saudi civil defense said.
It said that the crush, caused by large numbers of people gathering at Mina, outside the Muslim holy city of Mecca, had left 805 people injured.
Thursday's disaster was the deadliest such incident on the annual hajj pilgrimage in more than two decades, and comes nearly two weeks after a crane collapsed in Mecca, killing 100 people.
