Video: Eighteen killed at Loveparade in Duisburg

Tragedy struck at the love parade in Duisburg where 18 people died due to an ambush that took place during a tunnel passage. Besides those who died there were also about 100 injured out of which 45 heavily wounded. According to the police, about 1.4 million people were attending the Duisburg loveparade dance feast despite the fact that the terrain had a capacity of only 500.000 people. The tragedy happened in a tunnel on the way to the festival grounds as police were struggling to prevent people from getting into the overcrowded place. Thousands of participants had been walking along a hundred-meter pathway toward the festival for several hours, many of them intoxicated.
