INDIA-RELIGION-FESTIVAL-KUMBH-STAMPEDE

Indian authorities carry the bodies of two travellers killed in a stampede at the railway station in Allahabad on February 10, 2013. At least 10 people died in the stampede as pilgrims headed home from India's giant Kumbh Mela festival, which drew a record 30 million people to the banks of the river Ganges. Dozens more were injured in the crush and some local television channels put the death toll as high as 20. Local officials said that the railings on a bridge at Allahabad station had given way under the pressure of the mass of people, while eyewitnesses told local media that the police had baton-charged the crowd leading to panic.
