A dead body of a hajj pilgrim has been found in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, months after Muslims descended on the holy city of Mecca to perform hajj pilgrimage, Tazatarin reported.
The incident comes more than a year after the hajj stampede which claimed thousands of lives in Mina, Saudi Arabia.
The tragic catastrophe took place when two large masses of pilgrims converged at a crossroads during the symbolic ceremony of the stoning of Satan in Jamarat.
According to the Associated Press, more than 2,400 people lost their lives in the incident which took place on September 24, 2015.
Iran had the highest confirmed death toll among foreign nationalities as 460 Iranian pilgrims were among the victims of the Mina stampede.
Saudi authorities, however, put the death toll of the incident at 770.
As a result of this tragic event, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims did not attend the hajj pilgrimage this year due to the fact that Saudi Arabia failed to ensure their safety.
Iran also cancelled dispatching pilgrims to this year’s hajj pilgrimage as the Saudi regime created obstacles in the way of Iranians seeking to perform the annual rituals.
Back in September, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei issued a message, addressing Muslims across the world. In his message, Ayatollah Khamenei urged all Muslims to reconsider the management of hajj pilgrimage, saying “the criminal Saudi rulers killed the injured pilgrims at Mina last year because of their negligence in dealing with that incident.”
