Church robbery: 29 killed in stampede
While the prayers were going on, 29 people were killed when they suddenly saw a gang of armed robbers in the crowd and got stuck in a crowd as people ran to escape.
New Grove Town is located near Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, a West African country. A prayer meeting was held at the church here last Wednesday night. A large number of people attended with their families. Then a mob broke into the church to loot with weapons. Seeing this, the people in the church ran here and there to save their lives. Thus there was heavy congestion.
Many of these fell down. Others climbed on them and stepped out. Twenty-nine people were tragically killed in the stampede. Also, many have recovered with serious injuries and have been admitted to a nearby hospital. Speaking on the radio, the country’s Deputy Minister of Information Technology declared, “Today is a very sad day for the country.”
