Cambodia holds day of mourning for stampede victims

Cambodia has been holding a day of mourning for hundreds of people killed in a festival stampede.

Prime Minister Hun Sen joined officials and grieving relatives for a religious ceremony at the footbridge where the tragedy happened.

Cambodia's social affairs ministry now says some 350 people died in the crush, 100 fewer than it said on Wednesday.

BBC's Guy DeLauney reports.
