Mecca Crane Crash: Saudi Sanctions Binladin GroupLatest News, World News Wednesday, September 16th, 2015
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) | BY AYO BALOGUN – The Saudi authorities have barred the Executives of the giant Saudi Binladin Group, handling the extension works at the Grand Mosque of Mecca, from traveling out of the Kingdom as well as excluded from being engaged in new public contracts.
The announcement which was made public Tuesday was due to outcome of an investigative commission which held that the company, which is owned by the former Late Al-Qaedah Late Leader, Osama Bin Laden’s family lacked respect for the safety norms, which is parts of the reason for the collapse last Friday, of a huge crane at the Holy mosque, that killed 107 and injured over 200 pilgrims.
The crane reportedly came down during a storm, Friday evening when the mosque was filled to the brim, by the worshippers on Hajj exercise. The Grand mosque is the biggest and holiest mosque in the world.
