Apologies for asking, maybe a sideline question, but being non religious can someone please explain to me why the people are actually stampeding?  Is there a start time for whatever happens at Mecca that is set in stone and must not be missed, and if so what is it?

This one occurred due to what appears to be poor crowd management by the authorities. Sources other than the Saudi government say that two large crowds travelling in different directions intersected each other at an intersection. One of the crowds were police and Army personnel escorting some prince. Of course the Saudis are saying different.
