Dozens die in Kuwaiti wedding blaze


A fire in a wedding party tent in Kuwait has killed at least 41 women and children. More than 70 others are said to have been critically injured. Witnesses say a stampede followed the outbreak of the fire as people tried to escape the blaze – the death toll is expected to rise. Weddings in Kuwait are mostly segregated, with women seated separately from men. Tents are often erected especially for the occasion.
