Iran seeking to unveil aspects of Mina tragedy: Larijani

Speaker Ali Larijani has said that Iran is trying to learn more about the Mina tragedy through different channels and is determined to pursue the case of missing Iranian pilgrims.

Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Friday that Iran is seeking to unveil the aspects of the human tragedy in the Mina stampede through the fact-finding committee, the United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Larijani said that Iran is making efforts to pursue the case of Iranian pilgrims who went missing during the deadly incident.

The top MP went on to say that the Saudi government has buried some of the victims, adding that in order to identify the Iranian pilgrims, Iran is fingerprinting the victims.

Larijani blamed the Saudi officials for the incident, saying that they even didn’t act properly after the disaster.

About the former Iranian ambassador to Beirut Ghazanfar Roknabadi, who went missing in the incident, Larijani said that Roknabadi had been transferred to hospital, but Saudi officials deny that.
