周日凌晨,印度南部喀拉拉邦的一座寺庙发生了一起由烟花导致的爆炸,导致超过100人遇难。

Thousands of people had gathered at the temple near the coastal town of Paravur to watch the fireworks, part of a yearly religious celebration. Officials said some of the fireworks fell on a building where a large number of fireworks were being stored, causing explosions and a fire that spread quickly. Many more people were injured as they ran from the fire.
