SAUDI ARABIA OFFICIALS ACCUSED OF CAUSING HAJJ STAMPEDE

                                                          

     The horrific crush, which also left hundreds wounded, happened when two giant waves of Muslims collided at an intersection near a holy site in Mina.
 Saudi health Minister Khaled al-Falih blamed victims for the disaster for failing to follow instructions, adding: 

'This type of accident could have been avoided. However, this is God's will.' But pilgrims and 

Muslim groups hit back at the claims, accusing Saudi authorities of creating fatal bottlenecks by closing two roads being used by hundreds of thousands of worshippers.
