Ten dead at stadium vigil

7:00 am on 3 January 2013

Ten people were crushed to death and 120 were injured in Angola in a stampede at an evangelical vigil during New Year celebrations in the capital, Luanda.

They were crushed at the entrance to a stadium when only two of four gates were opened.

A bishop of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God said 70,000 people were expected, but far more turned up.
