Haj catastrophe in Saudi Arabia

.

.
From India about 45...stats for Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Afghans unknown...thus far.

Pakistani and Bangladeshi troops are in the holy sites working with the Saudi security authorities, but the sheer VOLUME of pilgrims coming into the place each year seems to have overwhelmed the organizational capabilities of the corrupt Saudi Israeli loving guardians of the two holy sites.

This is not the first such incident.
