At least 50 killed, 300 injured at Soleimani funeral stampede

The death toll has risen to 50, with 300 injured, in the stampede at the funeral of Qassem Soleimani in his hometown of Kerman on Monday. It is not known what caused the packed mourners to flee in panic crushing dozens in their path amid a breakdown of order. The burial of the late general has meanwhile been delayed.  Millions attended the mourning ceremony in Tehran on Sunday.

    Pure miss-informed Persians living under the strict religious propaganda since decades.
    I pity them all living and dead.

      Not a good sign for these vermins. They can do themselves a favour. Prepare more cemeteries.

      Gst,
      my thought exactly, airstrike to kill a dozen and they kill 50 of their own during a state funeral,
      a very strange culture they have,

    What I am wondering is why no one is talking about what caused the stampede? That makes me wonder, how many of those people there were celebrating his death instead of mourning. I read one report, I believe it was on JNS that stated there were videos coming out of Iran showing quds forces shooting people who refused to attend. Hmmm, me thinks there is something stinky about all of this… .
