At least 11 pilgrims are reported dead with many more injured after a stampede at a Hindu religious festival in India.
Thousands of people had gathered outside a temple in the eastern state of Jharkhand but tragedy struck when the doors opened at daybreak.
"We were all queueing," said pilgrim Nidhi Kumari.
"Suddenly there was a push and we all fell down."
The stampede in Deoghar came as devotees had assembled for a day considered auspicious for the temple's goddess.
