MAKKAH: Two people were injured late on Friday night when part of a mountain in Makkah collapsed on their home, state news agency SPA said.

The incident comes after 107 people were killed last week when a crane collapsed near Makkah’s Grand Mosque, despite which Muslim pilgrims are flocking to Makkah to attend next week’s Hajj.

The Civil Defense authority said the landslide caused the ceiling of the four story building in the Batha Quraish area to collapse, injuring a man and woman.

An investigation is still ongoing to reveal the cause of the accident, the SPA said.
