At least 150 pilgrims, who were on a Hajj to Mecca, on the occasion of Bakrid tomorrow, died in a stampede. Nearly 400 others were wounded in the incident. This is the second tragic incident at Mecca in 15 days. The pilgrims were crushed to death when the crowds were performing a ritual known as 'stoning the devil,' at Mina, 5 kms from Mecca.
