More Than 100 Die in Temple Fire in Southern India
An explosion caused by fireworks killed more than 100 people at a temple in the southern Indian state of Kerala early Sunday.
Thousands of people had gathered at the temple near the coastal town of Paravur to watch the fireworks, part of a yearly religious celebration. Officials said some of the fireworks fell on a building where a large number of fireworks were being stored, causing explosions and a fire that spread quickly. Many more people were injured as they ran from the fire.
A government official said the temple had not been given permission to hold the fireworks display.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought a special team of doctors to the area to help those who were injured.
In a tweet, Modi called the fire "heart-rending and shocking beyond words." He added, "My thoughts are with the families of the deceased and prayers with the injured."
