Hajj StampedePilgrims just stampeded 244 to death at the Stoning of Satan. Apparently, trampling deaths at the Islamic Holy pilgrimage are an annual event.

And the quote that just pulls it all together: "All precautions were taken to prevent such an incident, but this is God's will." Watch out world, here comes Allah.
