Ten people were killed and dozens injured in a stampede Monday after tens of thousands of people gathered for a funeral feast in Bangladesh’s southern city of Chittagong, police said.

Police and hospital staff said they feared the death toll could rise.

“So far we can confirm the death toll of 10 people,” city police chief Iqbal Bahar told AFP.

“The death toll could rise as 15 people are critically injured,” said another police official, Mohammad Alauddin.
