South Korea is in national mourning for the victims of a devastating crowd surge in Seoul’s nightlife district of Itaewon. A mass of mostly young people celebrating Halloween became trapped and crushed late on Saturday as the crowd moved forward into a narrow alley. At least 153 people were killed and 82 others injured in the country’s worst disaster in years. “I express my condolences to the victims of unexpected incident and hope the people who were injured will get better soon. My heart goes out to family members of the victims, who are suffering from the heartbreak of losing loved ones,’ South Korean president, Yoon Suk-yeol, said.
