on Sept. 11, 2015. The article doesn't say it, but the crane was owned by a company belonging to Osama bin Laden and his family that is based in Germany. Karma?


(CNN)A construction crane crashed through the roof of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, killing 107 people and casting a grim shadow on a yearly pilgrimage that draws millions to Saudi Arabia.

At least 238 others suffered injuries when a powerful storm toppled the crane, according to the nation's civil defense authorities.

The crane fell 10 days before the start of the Hajj, an annual pilgrimage expected to bring 2 million people to Mecca.

The mosque is the largest in the world and surrounds Islam's holiest site known as the Kaaba.
