NEW DELHI (KNOE 8 News/AP) - More than 100 people have been killed during a stampede at a Hindu festival in India.

Officials say the stampede started when pilgrims visiting a temple in Madhya Pradesh state on Sunday feared the bridge they were crossing would collapse and they panicked.

At least 109 people were crushed to death or died in the river below, and officials say some bodies may have washed away. Scores more were injured.
