Mecca stampede death toll rises to 8

The number Tanzanian pilgrims who perished in last month’s stampede in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, has risen to eight with more than 50 pilgrims still missing, the Muslim Council of Tanzania said yesterday. The council has also directed the Tanzania Hajj Commission to document all inefficiencies that led to the tragic incident in Mina, and forward them to the government of Saudi Arabia for further action.
