Stam­pede kills 22

Global Times - Weekend - - WORLD - AFP

A stam­pede killed at least 22 peo­ple and wounded 36 on Fri­day dur­ing a sud­den mon­soon down­pour at a busy rail­way sta­tion in In­dia’s com­mer­cial hub of Mum­bai, gov­ern­ment and emer­gency of­fi­cials said.

In­dia has the world’s fourth big­gest rail net­work, but it is grap­pling with un­der­in­vest­ment and over­crowd­ing, es­pe­cially in the city of 20 mil­lion where rail ac­ci­dents have killed more than 3,000 peo­ple in each of the last three years.
