Muslimpress:As the criticism over the incident in Mina increases the number of the deaths is revealing to be more than what Saudi claims. Iran says number of its citizens who died in the Hajj stampeded in Saudi Arabia last week has reached 464 - nearly double the previous toll. Iranian authorities said there was no longer hope of finding any of the country's missing pilgrims alive. According to Saudi officials, 769 people died in the crush in Mina, near Mecca, and 934 were injured. The Saudis have been criticized over their handling of security and for the slow publication of casualty figures. Iranian officials allege that the overall number of deaths is now more than 1,000. Pakistan, India, and Indonesia have also suggested death toll may be higher than the 769 reported by Saudi Arabia. Saudi authorities have not released a breakdown of victims by nationality, but a tally of the numbers of dead released by individual countries adds up to more than the official figure. The crush occurred as two large groups of pilgrims converged at right angles on the way to taking part in one of the Hajj's major rites at the Jamarat pillars.
