Mecca: Two people were injured late on Friday night when part of a mountain in Mecca collapsed on their home, state news agency SPA said. 

The incident comes after 107 people were killed last week when a crane collapsed near Mecca`s Grand Mosque.

Muslim pilgrims are flocking to Mecca to attend next week`s haj.

The Civil Defense authority said the landslide caused the ceiling of the four story building in the Batha Quraish area to collapse, injuring a man and woman. 

An investigation is still ongoing to reveal the cause of the accident, the SPA said.
