At least 150 people died and 390 others were injured in a stampede at Hajj in Saudi Arabia, reports said.

Saudi Arabia’s civil defense says that 150 pilgrims have died while at least 390 others were injured when a stampede broke out in the tent city of Mina, reported Al Arabiya News.

This is second tragedy to have hit this year’s pilgrimage after a crane crash killed 107 pilgrims and hurt hundreds of others.

Millions of people had gathered to take part in the last major rite of Hajj in the holy city of Mina.
