South Korea is in mourning after more than 150 people were killed – many in their teens and early 20s – when they were crushed during last night’s Halloween celebrations in the capital, Seoul.

More than a hundred others were injured. Officials are still investigating what prompted the crowd to surge through narrow streets in the popular Itaewon district, which is filled with nightclubs and bars.
