A second tragedy has struck Mecca within a span of two weeks. At least 220 people have reportedly been killed and close to 400 are injured in a stampede outside Mecca during Haj.
The tragedy happened even as Muslims worldwide are celebrating the holy day of Eid al-Adha. An estimated 2 million pilgrims traveled to Mecca for the celebration.
Just two weeks ago, over a hundred people were killed in Mecca when a construction crane fell inside the crowded Grand Mosque.
