Newsline: Iran’s ex-ambassador to Lebanon missing after stampede in Saudi Arabia

Iran’s former ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Roknabadi went missing during Thursday’s deadly hajj stampede in Saudi Arabia, his brother said Friday. “We are still searching for him… he is not answering his phone,” Mortada Roknabadi was quoted as saying by the Iranian National News Agency. Until now, the family hasn’t received any word on his death, he added. At least 717 pilgrims from around the world were killed Thursday in a stampede outside the Muslim holy city of Mecca.
