'Deal reached after Saudis submitted to Iran's Hajj conditions'
Qazi-Askar said Iran has interviewed hundreds of witnesses, and prepared video footage and other instances of evidence to be submitted to a fact-finding mission.

* * * Concerning the crane crash incident, Qazi-Askar said it has been agreed that the Saudi Binladin group pay blood money to the victims' families in two tranches.
Asked if the Hajj agreement was to have any impact on ties between the two countries, he said pilgrimage is a religious obligation that has nothing to do with the status of diplomatic ties.
