Saudi Arabia blames winds for deadly crane collapse, opens investigation
Saudi Arabia said on Saturday that stormy winds knocked over the crane which collapsed onto one of Islam's holiest shrines in Mecca and killed 107 people on Friday. "Heavy rain and strong winds of unusually high speed led to the uprooting of trees, the fall of panels and the collapse of the crane," General Suleiman al-Amr, director general of the Civil Defence Authority, told Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV on Saturday. Mecca's governor, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, has ordered an investigation into the incident, Al Arabiya said.
