The bus, which was carrying 44 Egyptians, was travelling to Mecca where the pilgrims were set to commence their ‘Umrah’, the lesser Islamic pilgrimage.

According to MENA, Saudi authorities are working to identify some of the victims using fingerprint tests.

Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it is providing support to the families of those killed and that its mission in Saudi Arabia is coordinating with Saudi authorities.
