|Children injured in the stampede are treated in an Abidjan hospital|
More than 60 people, most of them children aged between eight and 15, have died in a New Year's Eve stampede at a stadium in Ivory Coast.
It happened in Abidjan at around 2am local time after crowds gathered to watch a fireworks display.
Officials said 61 people had died and around 50 were injured, although some estimates of the number hurt were much higher.
Rescue co-ordinator Lieutenant Colonel Issa Sako said the number of people trying to get into the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium to watch the fireworks had caused the accident.
He said: "In the crush people were walked over and suffocated by the crowd."
May their souls rest in peace, Amen.
