(Newser) – At least 11 people were killed by a fan stampede after a Moroccan concert, reports the BBC. Some 40 others were injured when a wire fence collapsed, causing a mob to surge forward at the event packed with 70,000 spectators. The Rabat event was part of the week-long Mawazine world music festival that included several top musicians, including Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keyes, and Kylie Minoque.
