Συνολικά 717 άνθρωποι, διαφόρων εθνικοτήτων, έχουν χάσει τη ζωή τους από το ποδοπάτημα κατά το ετήσιο προσκύνημα του χατζ στη Σαουδική Αραβία, σύμφωνα με τον μέχρι στιγμής απολογισμό που ανακοίνωσε η υπηρεσία Πολιτικής Άμυνας. Ανέφερε επίσης ότι 805 άνθρωποι τραυματίστηκαν από το ποδοπάτημα που προκλήθηκε από τον μεγάλο αριθμό των ανθρώπων που είχαν συγκεντρωθεί στη Μίνα έξω από την ιερή για τους Μουσουλμάνους πόλη Μέκκα όπου περίπου δύο εκατομμύρια άνθρωποι συμμετείχαν στο χατζ.
