Palestinian pilgrim succumbs to wounds sustained in Jordan bus accident

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman on Friday succumbed to wounds she sustained some two weeks ago when a bus carrying Muslim pilgrims along the Jordan side of the Jordanian-Saudi border flipped over.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the woman as Kifaya Mahmoud Awad Abahreh, 50, from al-Yamun in western Jenin.

The woman succumbed to her wounds at the King Hussein Medical Center in the Jordanian capital of Amman, bringing the total of victims of the accident to 19 pilgrims.

Sixteen Palestinians were killed immediately and at least 34 injured when the bus driver lost control on March 17. The bus was traveling near the Mudawara area of the border near the city of Maan to cross into Saudi Arabia for the Muslim pilgrimage known as Umra.
