Chaotic scenes as crush kills dozens at religious festival in Israel

Guardian, 30 Apr 2021
At least 44 people have been killed in a crowd crush at a Jewish religious gathering in northern Israel attended by tens of thousands of people, in one of the country’s worst peacetime disasters.

Emergency services and ambulances also said that more than 150 people had been injured at the Lag Baomer gathering at the foot of Mount Meron. The event was the first large-scale religious gathering held legally since Israel lifted Covid-19 restrictions
