The annual Hajj pilgramage draws more than two million Muslim pilgrims from around the world.
Iran s Supreme Leader is threatening Saudi Arabia
with "tough and harsh" retaliation after saying
that the bodies of Hajj stampede victims are not
being repatriated swiftly.
"Saudi Arabia failed to fulfill its duties concerning
the desperate wounded (pilgrims)," said Ayatollah
Ali Khamenei, according to Iran s official PressTV.
"Should we decide to show any reaction, our
reaction will be tough and harsh," it quoted him
as saying at a military academy yesterday.
Iran s Foreign Ministry released a statement
saying that Khamenei had urged the formation of
a fact-finding committee of Muslim nations, includ-
ing Iran, to investigate the disaster.
The Ministry also summoned the Saudi charge
d affaires yesterday, warning against any delay in
identifying and repatriating missing and dead Iran-
ian pilgrims, Iran s state-run Mehr News Agency
Iran and Saudi Arabia have been stepping up
their war of words over last Thursday s stampede,
with Riyadh accusing Tehran of politicising the
tragedy and Tehran demanding an apology from
Saudi Arabia, which it says mismanaged the Hajj.
The annual Hajj pilgramage draws more than
two million Muslim pilgrims from around the world.
The Saudi state-run SPA news agency says at
least 769 people were killed and more than 900
injured in the crush at Mina, a neighbourhood
about two miles from the Mecca holy site, but Iran
says the death toll is higher.
Iran s Hajj and Pilgrimage Organisation says 239
Iranian pilgrims have so far been confirmed dead,
with 241 others unaccounted for. It referred to
what it said was an overall death toll of 4,173.
Khamenei also lashed out Sunday at Saudi Arabia
over the Mina deaths.
"Saudi Arabia s rulers, instead of shifting blame
(to others), must accept their responsibility in this
heavy mishap by apologising to the Islamic Ummah
and their bereft families, and meeting their obli-
gations to that effect," Khamenei said, according
to a statement released by his office.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir
responded by saying Iranians should not politically
exploit a tragedy, SPA reported Sunday.
"We are going to disclose the truth when it comes
out (following the completion of an investigation)
and not hide anything. Had a wrongdoing taken
place in Hajj, those who were in charge would be
fully held responsible," it quoted him as telling
reporters in New York as world leaders gathered
for the United Nations General Assembly.
The Middle Eastern rivals have also been trading
jabs over foreign policy in the war-torn nations of
Yemen and Syria in their comments on the Hajj
Yesterday, a statement by the Saudi-led coalition
in Yemen said the Saudi navy had intercepted an
Iranian ship attempting to smuggle arms in to
Yemen over the weekend off the coast of Oman.
Weapons including anti-tank shells and rocket
launchers were seized from the ship, which was
manned by 14 Iranians and had Iranian documents
claiming it was a fishing boat, the coalition said.
