87 persons feared dead after crane collapsed inside a mosque in Mecca (GRAPHIC PHOTOS)
The incident happened earlier today at the Grand Mosque of Mecca. At least 184 other people were injured. The crane fell following high winds and rain. The Arabian peninsula has been hit by strong sand storms over the past week.
Few details were immediately available but pictures circulating on social media showed bloodied bodies strewn across part of the mosque where the crane was seen having crashed into the ceiling.
The incident occurred as hundreds of thousands of Muslims gather from all over the world for the annual hajj pilgrimage set to begin later this month.
