Iraqi bridge stampede

I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when an alert flashing on my monitor told me that 500 Iraqis had died during a stampede on a bridge on the river Tigris, in Baghdad. I waited and looked for confirmation but it is now clear that the toll is worse than that. Gatewaypundit has an excellent round up and also an underreported item about a rally in Kut, in favor of the constitution with 12,000 participants.
