An explosion and fire that happened at the Colectiv nightclub in the Romanian capital Bucharest during a Halloween rock concert yesterday has killed 27 people.
154 people are injured in total and it is believed the death toll could continue to rise.

they were fainting from the smoke. It was total chaos, people were trampling on each other.’ Flames reportedly engulfed clubgoers, burning their skin and hair. Media reports that emergency services arrived 11 minutes after the first call at 10.32pm local time.
