It is pathetic how a Charity event in Bangladesh killed 25 people a witness said.

Dhaka, Bangladesh: At least 25 people were killed in a stampede that broke out in a large crowd gathered to receive free clothes in Dhaka, Bangladesh, police said.

More than 2000 people, most of them residents of nearby slums, had assembled outside the home of a factory owner, Mohammad Shamim, for the clothing giveaway, said Moinul Haque, the police chief of the district of Mymensingh. There was “huge pressure” from the back of the crowd as people in front tried to open the gate, Mr Haque said.

Mr Shamim, his son and six members of the factory’s staff were arrested, said Mohammad Kamrul Islam, a police official. The men are suspected of causing the deaths through negligence, in that they failed to organise the event properly, Mr Haque said.
