Karachi, Sindh – sudden rush to get free food kills 16

Karachi – Sindh: At least 16 women and children have been killed in a sudden rush to get free flour in Karachi, Sindh officials say. Many more got injured in the crush, reports say. The flour was being handed out in a poor, congested neighbourhood as a part of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Some of the victims suffocated in the sudden rush officials said. “The incident happened because the distribution was taking place in a very confined area without any precautions,” Karachi police chief Waseem Ahmed told reporters. He said the man distributing the free flour had been detained because he had not given police prior notice”.
