13 Turkish pilgrims still missing after Mecca stampede
Five missing Turkish pilgrims have been found while another 13 remain unaccounted for following Thursday's stampede near Mecca that left more than 700 Hajj pilgrims dead on the first day of the Eid al-Adha holiday, Anadolu agency reported.
According to officials from Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate, the five recovered pilgrims are all in good medical condition.
Efforts to locate the remaining 13 missing pilgrims, meanwhile, remain ongoing.
More than 750 Hajj pilgrims were killed Thursday morning - and at least 800 injured - in a stampede that took place near the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
According to Saudi figures, some 2 million Muslims from around the world are participating in this year's Hajj pilgrimage.
Thursday's deadly stampede comes two weeks after 107 people were killed by a crane that collapsed in Mecca's Grand Mosque, which had been teeming with worshippers at the time of the accident.
