Karbala: 31 pilgrims dead, 100 injured in Ashura stampede

The Iraqi Health Ministry claims that at least 31 pilgrims lost their life and dozens more suffered wounds in a stampede during Ashura’s Muslim religious rituals in the Iraqi city of Karbala.

Spokesman for the ministry, Saif al-Badr, announced the news in a statement on Tuesday, saying that the toll could rise further as 100 pilgrims were injured, including 10 in critical condition.
