Indian woman among more than 700 killed in Mecca stampede

At least 717 people were killed, including an Indian woman and 800 were injured, in a stampede near Mecca, Saudi Arabia, on Thursday morning. The deaths — at an intersection in Mina, about six miles east of the city — occurred around 9 a.m. on the first day of Eid al-Adha, one of the holiest holidays in the Muslim calendar, and as millions of Muslims were making their pilgrimage, or hajj, to Mecca.
