Deaths at German music festival

"Mass panic" at crowded techno festival results in deadly stampede.

    At least 18 people have been killed at a music festival in western Germany.

    A stampede broke out in a tunnel leading to the "Love Parade" festival on Saturday after authorities tried to stop people from entering the over-crowded area.

    About 1.4 million people were attending the event in the town of Duisburg near the city of Dusseldorf when the tragedy occurred.
