Stampede Near Mecca Leaves at Least 453 Dead

The accident in Saudi Arabia, in which 719 were also injured, occurred on the first day of Eid al-Adha, one of the holiest Muslim holidays.

The carnage happened at a "stoning of the devil" ritual.  For many, the devil apparently won this confrontation.
