Makkah crane crash

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has sanctioned the powerful Saudi Binladin Group over the collapse of a construction crane at Mecca’s Grand Mosque, which killed more than 100 people days before the hajj pilgrimage.

An investigative commission had concluded that the company “was in part responsible” for Friday’s tragedy, which killed at least 107 people and injured almost 400 during a severe thunderstorm accompanied by violent winds.
