The Jordanian foreign ministry announced that 14 of their pilgrims had died and 17 others were missing during the hajj rituals. The ministry later confirmed that the 14 pilgrims had passed away ‘after suffering sun stroke due to the extreme heat wave.’ Iranian Red Crescent chief Pirhossein Koolivand reported that ‘five Iranian pilgrims have lost their lives so far in Mecca and Medina during the hajj this year,’ without specifying the causes of their deaths.
