Saudi council urges more space at hajj stampede site

Saudi Arabia’s Shura Council recommended Monday an expansion of roads leading to the site of a ritual in the annual hajj pilgrimage where more than 2,000 pilgrims died in a stampede last year.

Muslim pilgrims blamed the stampede on police road closures and poor management of the flow of hundreds of thousands of people, who found escape routes blocked when the crush occurred.

The tragedy happened as they made their way in searing temperatures to the Jamarat, the place where pilgrims ritually stone the devil in the Mina tent city in western Saudi Arabia.

Saudi officials blamed pilgrims themselves for not following rules.
