Hundreds killed in Baghdad bridge disaster

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The numbers are sketchy now but the low end is 300+ and CNN is reporting well over 600 dead. A massive crowd was crossing the al-Aima bridge during a pilgrimage to a Shiite shrine in northern Baghdad when a railing broke sending hundreds of people off of the bridge. CNN is reporting that rumors of a suicide bomber in the group triggered the stampede which broke the railing.
