  • Six dead and scores injured in Italian nightclub stampede

More than 100 other people were injured, including a dozen who were seriously hurt.

In June previous year about 1,500 people were injured in Turin after a firecracker sparked a stampede at a public screening of the Champions League final.

Six people, including five young teenagers, were crushed to death in the early hours of Saturday following a stampede at a packed nightclub near Ancona on Italy's Adriatic coast, officials said.

Asked about survivors' accounts that at least one emergency exit door was blocked or didn't work, Poggiali said it was too early in the investigation to know if any safety violations might have played a role.

Survivors have claimed that the stampede began when fears arose that pepper stray had been fired into the Ancona venue. Some of those with minor injuries were treated and released from hospital, he added.

Sky Italia TV has reported that the teenagers were all aged between 14 and 16, while the woman was 39.

Panicked revellers tried to flee a rap concert after someone sprayed pepper spray into the crowd. "The bouncers told us to go back", he said. It wasn't immediately clear how many people were inside when the stampede erupted or the club's maximum capacity.

Salvini vowed that responsibility would be determined for the "six broken lives - whoever out of nastiness, stupidity or greed transformed an evening of partying into tragedy".
