More than 700 Killed in Hajj Stampede

Hosted by

Saudi Arabia takes pride in hosting the Hajj every year, when millions of Muslims travel to Mecca, but once again the pilgrimage has turned deadly. Less than two weeks ago a construction crane crashed, killing 111 people. Today, six miles from Mecca, more than 700 were killed and almost 900 were injured in a stampede.
