345 Dead.

At the Hajj, at least 345 Muslims were stomped out by their "brothers and sisters" during the pilgrimage. In Mina, Saudi Arabia what was to be a recreation of a stoning to purge themselves of sin ended in disaster. Why? Because there are literally thousands upon thousands of people trying to get to the same place at the same time. This time, they tripped over a bunch of luggage. How senseless is that? Is there a timeline involved somewhere during the pilgrimage, or could everyone possibly wait their turn? What a mess.
