Iran on Thursday nearly doubled its death toll from last week's hajj stampede, saying there was no hope of finding pilgrims missing after the tragedy.
"Seven days after this tragic accident... the status of all (pilgrims) injured has been completely cleared and reported," Iran's hajj organisation said in a statement carried by state television.
It said 464 Iranian pilgrims were thought to have died in the stampede near Mecca last Thursday.
