The Health Ministry announced Thursday that a 45-year-old woman Amani Mahmoud Abdel Fattah، an Egyptian pilgrim from Fayyoum governorate، died Thursday in Saudi Arabia، while preparing to perform the rituals for the Hajj pilgrimage in August.

The death of Amani raised the death toll of Egyptian pilgrims to six.

Amani was died as a result of a sharp drop in blood circulation and a blood clot in the lung، the ministry's Spokesman Khaled Megahed said in a statement on Thursday.

The medical mission's emergency room is coordinating with authorities concerned to issue a death certificate for Abdel Fattah، he added.
