the death toll is rising in saudi arabia this morning. more than 700 people were killed in a stampede during the hajj, the pilgrimage to mecca. nearly 900 injured in the crush there. king solomon demanding review of the protocols. let's get the latest from the cnn correspondent damon daarwa . arwa, the pictures are horrible. >> reporter: they are difficult to look at and the sheer number of casualties. the saudi authorities are putting together a committee and trying to investigate this to pinpoint what went wrong.
what we do know is the stampede occurred at an intersection of two of the smaller routes used by pilgrims to get in and out of an area near the city of mena. this is the ritual where the stoning of the devil takes place. where pilgrims throw small rocks at three pillars symbolizing the rejection of the devil. over the last few years, since 2006, that's when last such stampede occurred in the same vicinity that left 300 people dead. saudi arabia has then poured upwards of $1.2 billion into expanding the different venues that are used. especially focusing on this particular area. trying to create larger passage ways for the pilgrims. creating a complicated complex of intertwining roads and
overpasses to try to ease the pressure that exists at the different points along the way. we are talking about 2 to 3 million people trying to carry out this sacred ritual. for many, john, this is a journey of the lifetime. they come from around the world and villages that don't necessarily have electricity. they save their entire lives for the ritual which is one of the key five pillars of islam. for the 700 plus that were killed and those wounded, what should have been a spiritual journey did end in tragedy. a lot of questions asked to make sure this does not happen again. >> so many people in one place. arwa damon, thank you. >> the very beginning of the pope's message yesterday, he brought up the 700 victims and called the victims his brothers
