Names of Ghanaians who died in Hajj stampede released

The Pilgrims Affairs Office of Ghana has released the names of Ghanaians who did not survive the deadly stampede at Mina during the 2015 Hajj.

The September 24 disaster led to the loss of at least 700 lives while several others were injured.

Ten Ghanaians are reported to have lost their lives with six said to be receiving medical treatment in Saudi Arabia as a result of injuries sustained from the disaster.

Twenty-nine Ghanaian pilgrims are, however, unaccounted for and it is unclear whether they died during the disaster, which is said to be the worst in 25 years.
