Stampede in India Kills At Least 100

Hindu devotees pray at the Sabarimala temple during the Maravilakku festival marking the final of a two-month pilgrimage to the Lord Ayyappa temple in Kerala, south India on January 14, 2011.

A group of religious pilgrims drove into a group of worshippers late Friday in India, triggering a stampede that killed nearly 100 people.

Indian officials say at least 90 others were injured in the accident in the southern state, Kerala.

The pilgrims were returning from a religious festival at a remote shrine when the jeep lost control and smashed into the crowd.
