Hajj Stampede - Crush during Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia 24.09.2015

The deathtoll is now 450.

Subhanallah! Innalillahi waina illahi rajiun. To God we belong and to him is our return.
This is a tragedy, first the crane accident and now this? It goes to show that no matter how much the Saudi government prepares for the massive influx of Hajj Pilgrims, they still have ways to go for crowd control, I mean this is not the first time and it happens a lot, its one of the main things pilgrims are told about before they go. Construction improvement is a step in the right direction, however, your dealing with people from different societies and culture, there should be more focus on crowd control policies, for example they can place panic buttons for folks in front and around the walls to sound an alarm when a situation gets uncomfortable. 
May Allah accept the departed into his kingdom, and may he grant peace to the families left behind.
