How on Earth any compensation whatsoever either for deceased or injured be "other gifts"? It''s their legal rights. There is no festival stuff here, it was a serious safety issue. Who are punished for this?

Any action on construction company ? I remember accident at mecca even due to natural calamity, Bin laden company lost all it govt projects and huge fine imposed on company.
But as usual if victims are Asians, no one cares even embassies. They didn''t mention compensation amount. They feel even 100 kd like millions for Asians.
