Safety in Mecca – level 2
During a Muslim holy day, many Muslims went to Mecca to make their haji pilgrimage, and they went to a special place. They performed an important rite.
Two years ago, 2,000 people died there from overcrowding and from being crushed as they walked on the bridge to this place. In response, the government made plans to make the area safer. It has more than 100,000 security staff managing all of the people this year.
