The rescue team arrived immediately after the stampede in Mina were nearly two million pilgrims were attending the last rite of Hijja, according to Saudi Arabia’s Civil Defence Service ( SACDS ).

The rescue team is still searching for more dead bodies at the scene which includes pilgrims from many different countries and over 800 pilgrims have been injured.[7]

Many countries including Iran that lost 43 pilgrims have accused Saudi-Arabia for poor safety errors that caused the accident, however,[1] some Saudi Arabian government officials put the blame on pilgrims themselves for failing to follow the rules amended by the authorities, some pilgrims donot respect the time table,[3] they just move outside any how, but if they had followed instructions, this kind of accident would not happen.
