(SALEM, Ore.) - Saudi Arabia is going to offer each Turkish and Pakistani victim of Mecca stampede $270.00 in secret compensation, reports say.

According to well-informed Saudi sources, the Saudi ambassadors in Islam Abad and Ankara have informed the Pakistani and Turkish officials respectively that the oil-rich kingdom would pay for each victim of last Thursday's deadly crush in Mecca a sum of 10 million Saudi Riyal (equivalent to 270.00 USD) if the two countries refrain from criticizing Riyadh's utter mismanagement of the crisis, directly causing such a poignant catastrophe.

The Turkish administration of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan slammed Saudi Arabia for the Hajj debacle during the very first days of the tragic disaster, though it wasn't long before receiving financial guarantees —Riyadh promised to pay a large sum of “hush-money” for every dead Turkish pilgrim— that Ankara ceased condemning Saudi Arabia.

Intelligence reports also say that those Pakistani officials received a same proposal in exchange of Islam Abad's complete silence and even international support for Saudi Sheikhs.

The Saudi government promised victims' countries that it will pay a sum of 1 million SAR for every deceased pilgrim.
