This is terrible news.
4 Malaysians were killed in the Mecca hostel collapse. They were all from Sabah. After those injured/hospitalised Malaysians informed Tabung Haji officers that there were other Malaysians affected, the Mina Muaissim mortuary was checked where their bodies were identified through identification bracelets worn by all Malaysian pilgrims. They will be buried at the Mina Muaissim burial ground.
The death toll of those victimised by the collapsed building has risen to 76.
