Several pilgrims have died in a stampede in Mina, Saudi Arabia, during the commemoration of Jamarat which is the “stoning” of the devil with pebbles.
Over 3 million pilgrims observing this year’s hajj, who spent the night in the plain fields of Muzdalifa, began trooping to the Jamarat as early as 3am local time.
Aid workers are currently conveying corpses and injured pilgrims to hospitals.
Details to come.
