Black Nazarene: deaths and injuries at procession in Manila

Two people have died in Manila during a traditional religious procession.

Hundreds were also injured in the parade of the Black Nazarene which dates back to 1607.

90 percent of Philippinos are Catholic. They believe the statue grants wishes and enacts miracles.
