Mecca crane crash: Hajj pilgrimage to go ahead as planned, Saudi officials say

  • The hajj pilgrimage will go ahead as scheduled despite the crane collapse at Mecca’s Grand Mosque that killed at least 107 people, Saudi officials have said.

    Meanwhile, a probe has begun into Friday’s accident at the holy city. About 240 people were also injured in the crash, some of them critically. 

    A senior Saudi official had earlier said that high winds and stormy weather had led to the disaster.

    Millions of Muslims from around the world are expected to converge in Mecca later this month for the annual hajj pilgrimage.
