A Birmingham man is believed to be one of two British Muslims killed in a stampede at the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.
The pair were among the 345 pilgrims who died during the crush, which also left about 1,000 people injured.
One of the men has already been named by the British Hajj delegation as Fiaz Haque, aged 38, from Uxbridge, Middlesex.
The delegation, which acts as a support network for British Muslims making the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, said several Britons had also been injured.
The Foreign Office was unable to confirm any further details.
Some 25,000 Britons are thought to have travelled to the region to take part in the five-day pilgrimage.
The stampede happened on Thursday as tens of thousands of pilgrims headed towards al-Jamarat, a series of three pillars representing the Devil which the faithful pelt with stones to purge themselves of sin.
The stoning ritual is one of the last events of the Hajj, which all Muslims are obliged to undertake at least once in their lives provided they have the financial means.
The incident happened on the final day of the Hajj, which attracted around four million pilgrims.
Muslims at the Ghamkool Shareef Mosque, in Small Heath, yesterday said they were particularly worried for a cleric who regularly ministers with them and who went to visit the region.
Imam Mohammed Basharat, aged 30, left Birmingham on December 25 with his wife and two children to make the pilgrimage.
Fellow worshipper Mohammed Yasin said he feared for Mr Basharat's life as he had not heard from him in days.
The annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina has been plagued by disaster in recent years.
Thousands of people, most of them pilgrims, have died in tragedies linked to Islam's holiest shrines.
The worst stampede of modern times was in 1990 when 1,426 pilgrims, many of them Malaysians, Indonesians and Pakistanis, were killed in a crush in an overcrowded pedestrian tunnel leading to holy sites.
