Eighteen pilgrims who were injured in a stampede near the Grand Mosque on Friday night were treated at the scene and none required admission to hospital. The incident happened on Friday night as the faithful gathered in large numbers to mark the Night of Power, one of the high points of the fasting month. The number of worshippers at the Haram was nearly 2 million. Among new security measures, Haj pilgrims this year will have to wear an electronic safety bracelet to store their personal information, including address and medical records.
