article imageStampede kills 15 at annual techno music festival in Germany

By Samuel Okocha     Jul 24, 2010 in World
At least 15 people have died and 15 others were injured after mass panic broke out in a tunnel at an annual celebration of techno music in western Germany.
The deaths occurred at the Love Parade in Duisburg where thousands had gathered for the event. Police gave no other immediate details in the Saturday incident, the Associated Press reported.
It said the German news agency DAPD reported the stampede broke out after authorities tried to stop thousands of people from entering the area where the parade was being held.
The all-news station said the party went on after the accident with many of the club party lovers unaware of the stampede.
The original Berlin Love Parade reportedly grew from a 1989 peace demonstration into a huge outdoor celebration of club culture that drew about 1.5 million people at its peak in 1999.
The Love Parade has been held in the industrial Ruhr region of western Germany since 2007.
