    At least 150 people killed in Saudi Arabia hajj stampede
    Published September 24, 2015

    BREAKING NEWS: Saudi Arabian civil defense officials said Thursday that at least 150 people were killed and 400 others were injured in a stampede near the Muslim holy city of Mecca, where an estimated 2 million people are undertaking the traditional hajj pilgrimage.

    Reuters, citing Saudi state television, reported that the stampede took place in Mina, a tent city located approximately three miles east of Mecca itself. The area is on the main road from the center of Mecca to the Hill of Arafat, revered by Muslims as the place where Muhammad gave his farewell sermon to Muslims who had accompanied him to Mecca near the end of his life.

    The circumstances of the stampede were not immediately clear. However, there has been a history of crowd tragedies during the hajj, which every Muslim is required to complete at least once in their life.

    In 2006, 364 pilgrims were killed in a stampede at the entrance to a bridge leading to the site in Mina where the prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) is believed to have thrown stones at the devil, who tried to tempt him against carrying out various tasks set by God. In 2004, 251 people were trampled to death in a similar incident.

    Imagine being a newscaster and you have to pretend to act like this is a tragedy.

    But inside, you're all like :giggle:

    Let's face it, your religion sucks if you have to threaten to kill people who don't appreciate it.
