TRAGEDY IN MINA LATEST NEWS
24th September 2015
The Scottish Hajj and Umrah Trust is saddened to hear of the tragedy in Mina and our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected. All our pilgrims are understandably upset by the today’s events.
We are maintaining contact with Habib Malik, Director of the Scottish Hajj and Umrah Trust, and Dr. Sharif who are with our group of Scottish pilgrims in Mecca. They are providing support locally to Scottish pilgrims and other pilgrims they are in contact with.
The Saudi authorities have deployed 100,000 security personnel and an additional 4,000 rescue workers and 220 ambulances to help with the relief effort.ShareTweet
