  • Germany Love Parade Deaths

    Security opens fences for people to leave the area after a panic on this year's techno-music festival "Loveparade 2010" in Duisburg, Germany, on Saturday, July 24, 2010. A stampede inside the tunnel crowded with techno music fans crushed more than a dozen to death at Germany's famed Love Parade festival on Saturday. Thousands of other revelers keep partying at the event in Duisburg, near Duesseldorf, unaware of the deadly stampede that started when police tried to block thousands of people from entering the already-jammed parade grounds. Police are still trying to determine exactly what happened, but the situation was "very chaotic," police commissioner Juergen Kieskemper said. (AP Photo/dapd/Hermann J. Knippertz)
