German Festival Tragedy Claims Another

Panic among fans being herded into a tunneled area leading into a European techno-music and dance event  Saturday (7/24), triggered a stampede that claimed its 21st victim Wednesday (7/28).  19 died on the scene or shortly after being removed from the site. Reports put injuries in the massive crowd in and around the Love Parade near Duesseldorf in western Germany in the hundreds.  The tragedy apparently resulted when police, concerned that the site was already too crowded, tried to block a gathering crowd from entering.
