Report from the Salt Lake Tribune:
More than 950 people were killed and hundreds injured Wednesday morning when rumors of a suicide bomber provoked a frenzied stampede in a procession of Shiite pilgrims as they crossed a bridge in northern Baghdad, government and hospital officials said.
Terrible tragedy, almost unimaginable. This is a horrible week for the entire world.
