Halloween horror at Bucharest nightclub
Government officials said there were 26 dead after the blast at the Colectiv Club, with 154 people injured in total on Friday night.
Dozens of ambulances and fire trucks were seen rushing to evacuate the injured as clubgoers were treated for burns and other injuries on the pavement outside the venue (left, centre and right). Deputy Interior Minister Raed Arafat said the death toll may still climb, as 88 people are treated in hospital. The venue (inset) was hosting a rock concert for Halloween attended by up to 400. The band Goodbye to Gravity was launching its latest album at the club, called Mantras of War, when the chaos broke out.
