Saudi says 1,300 died during Hajj-2024, 83% of them unregistered pilgrims

Riyadh, June 24: Saudi Arabia said on Sunday that as many as 1,301 people died during the Hajj pilgrimage, with “numerous cases” due to heat stress and “unauthorized” trips accounting for over four out of five of the deaths.
In a statement, the Saudi government said, “The health system addressed numerous cases of heat stress this year, with some individuals still under care. Regrettably, the number of mortalities reached 1,301.”
The statement noted that 83 per cent of those who died were “unauthorised to perform Hajj” and “walked long distances under direct sunlight, without adequate shelter or comfort.”
It said that the deceased people included “several elderly and chronically ill individuals,” adding that the families of all the dead had now been identified.
