A day of horror in Cambodia

Phnom Penh

A stampede by thousands of Cambodian festival-goers left at least 378 dead and hundreds of injured. A panic-stricken crowd, celebrating the end of the rainy season on an island in a river, tried to flee over a narrow bridge in Phnom Penh late Monday. Many people were crushed underfoot or fell over its sides into the water. It is unclear what sparked the stampede.
