‘S. Arabia should be held accountable for Mina tragedy’

September 25, 2016

TEHRAN – Iran’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations has slammed Riyadh for its performance after the Mina crush in September last year in which 464 Iranian pilgrims were killed, Mehr reported.

Addressing the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) foreign ministers in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Gholam Hossein Dehqani said not only did Riyadh not apologize to or compensate the bereaved families, but also refused to investigate the incident.
