Saudi Arabia's crown Prince has ordered a thorough investigation into the stampede at the hajj pilgrimage on Thursday.

DAILY POST reports that more than 700 persons were trapped to death in the holy city while performing hajj.

The official Saudi Press Agency reports that, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, who chairs the Saudi hajj committee, ordered the probe during a meeting with senior officials responsible for the pilgrimage in Mina, where the stampede took place.

Report says findings of the investigation will be submitted to King Salman, "who will take appropriate measures" in response, the agency added.

At the time, Nayef said the accident would not affect this year's pilgrimage and that the safety of pilgrims was a "priority".

Earlier Thursday, Health Minister Khaled al-Faleh promised that there would be a rapid and transparent investigation of the stampede, which he blamed on undisciplined pilgrims not following instructions.
