1,170 Swedish Pilgrims Safe

Sweden’s Muslim Council has been contacting Swedish Pilgrim Groups to check the safety of Swedes in Saudi Arabia after a deadly crush killed at least 362 people on the last day of the haj pilgrimage.

The head of the Muslim Council Helena Benaouda says 1,170 Swedes have been confirmed safe.

Benaouda estimates that there are some 2,000-3,000 Swedish pilgrims in Mecca.
