The Water Festival Is A Major Event In Colombia

More than two million people were attending the Water Festival in the capital of Phnom Penh, when the crowd got panicked for an unspecified reason, and a stampede broke out. At least 345 people were killed by being trampled. Most died from suffocation and internal injuries. A few died from electrocution after trying to escape the mayhem by climbing on the electrical cables.

The Cambodian Prime Minister said it is the “biggest tragedy”to happen to Cambodia since the Khmer Rouge regime was killing thousands of innocents during the 70′s.
