India wedding: At least 24 killed by collapsing wall

At least 24 people were killed when a wall collapsed during a wedding party in northern India.

The guests had taken shelter from heavy rain under a tin shack when a wall collapsed onto it in the storm.

Another 26 people were injured in the accident in Bharatpur, a district in Rajasthan state, 15 of them seriously. Dozens were trapped.

Local media reports say food stalls had been set up along the wall for the wedding.

“The wall and a tin shed attached to it at the marriage venue collapsed due to a storm,” police officer Anil Tank is quoted as saying.

He said the wall was nearly 90ft (27m) long and 12-13ft in height.

“The injured were rushed to nearby hospitals immediately and treatment was administered,” he said.

Bharatpur district is about 200km (124 miles) south of Delhi.
