Five people killed in Algiers stampede

Five young people were killed and dozens more injured in a stampede at a packed rap concert in the Algerian capital, a spokesman for the rescue services said yesterday. The stampede took place Thursday night as fans thronged an entrance of the August-20 Stadium where rapper Soolking was to perform. The 29-year-old has won a huge number of fans in the North African country, his song “La Liberte” (Freedom) becoming a mainstay of anti-government protests that entered their seventh month yesterday.
