Published: 01.01.13, 16:39 / Israel News

Authorities say at least 61 people were killed early Tuesday in a stampede following a New Year's fireworks display in Abidjan, Ivory Coast's commercial center. State radio and a fire department rescue worker, who refused to give his name, said that many more people were injured in the Plateau district of Abidjan as the event ended about 4 am.

The worker said a crowd of thousands gathered at the Houphouet Boigny Stadium to see the fireworks and after the crowd became a crush in which people were trampled. (AP)
