Thirteen children were killed and 40 others injured, as a result of a stampede accrued during their departure from an elementary school in western Kenya.
“We lost 13 children in a stampede, and we have others lying in the hospital to receive the necessary treatment,” said David Cabina, chief of police in Kakamega City.
According to the Reuters news agency, the sources said that the children were subjected to a panic that led to their stampede, and the source of their feeling of terror is still unknown.
