Fire, wall collapse kill 21 at Pakistan wedding

A fire broke out in a tent at a wedding party in eastern Pakistan, triggering a stampede and wall collapse that killed 21 women and children, police said Sunday. More than 30 other people were injured when the wedding party turned into a tragedy late Saturday night in Jhok Utra, a village about 120 kilometers (75 miles) west of the city of Multan, said area police officer Khadim Hussain Khadim. A high-powered electric light apparently sparked the fire in the large canvas tent where more than 100 women and children, many singing wedding songs, were present, Khadim said.
