The head of Saudi Arabia’s Hajj committee blamed the stampede that has killed more than 700 pilgrims in the holy city of Mina on “some pilgrims from African nationalities,” Saudi-owned television is reporting.

The comments have sparked recriminations online towards pilgrims from the African continent, with one person calling for a “decrease in the number of pilgrims from several countries such as Egypt and African countries, with all due respect, and to increase the number of pilgrims from Malaysia who are known for their order and rational behavior.”

    I certainly hope this prince doesn't have diplomatic immunity. Diplomatic
    immunity is nothing but a license to do what ever one wants:

  2. Thanks. Totally missed this info.
