Muslim pilgrims who have gone for this year's hajj were met with their dead a Mina near MECCA as they went to "stone the devil" in Kaaba. The act of "Stoning the devil" is an annual Muslim ritual during the Hajj pilgrimage.

The stampede, according to early report, has led the death of over 300 people and over 450 injured.
This is the second tragedy on this year's greater hajji in which multitude died. We recall the first being the collapse of construction crane which fell on the pilgrims and about 107 died including 6 Nigerians, and over 200 injured.

More casualties are been recorded as at press time. May their souls rest in peace.
