India stampede: Relatives gather at bridge

The death toll from a stampede at a Hindu festival in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh has risen to 115, local officials have said.

Many were crushed after panic broke out on a bridge near the Ratangarh temple. Others drowned when they jumped from the bridge into river waters below.

The BBC's Zubair Ahmed is in Datia where relatives seeking news of loved ones have gathered at the scene.
