At least 145 Nigerians are now known to have died during last month’s Hajj stampede in Mina, Saudi Arabia, Nigerian officials have said.

The head of Nigeria’s Hajj Commission Abdullahi Mukhtar Mohammed said that a further 165 people have not yet been accounted for.

Mr Mukhtar said that the Saudi authorities took finger prints of the deceased and that DNA tests would be conducted on bodies to work out who is still missing.
