At least 16 South Korean music fans plummeted more than 65 feet to their deaths at an outdoor K-pop concert by the group 4Minute on Friday when a ventilation grate collapsed. The grate, which the victims had been standing on, had covered a concrete shaft that led to an underground garage. Eleven others were seriously injured in the accident, according to The Associated Press, which cites information from an official in Seongnam, a city to the south of Seoul. The BBC reports that the number of those killed and injured by the collapse could rise as investigations continue.

“Twelve peoplewere killed at the scene, two others died while theywere being rushed to the hospital,” the BBC reported a local fire official as saying, via South Korea’sYonhap news agency. “Othersare assumed to have passed away while receiving medical treatment.”

The victims have not been identified, but AP reports that YTN television network suggested that the concertgoers were mainly female students. About 700 people were in attendance at the concert, which was part of a local festival being held at what the BBC described as “a multi-purpose complex for technology firms.”

Fan-shot video from the concert showed 4Minute continuing with their concert, unaware of the disaster.

The grate itself was elevated to shoulder height for most concertgoers. The fans had likely climbed atop it to get a better view of the stage. The hole left by the grate appeared to be 10 to 14 feet square, according to AP. The cause of the collapse is not yet known.

“There was a sudden, loud screaming, and when I turned it looked as if people were being sucked down into a hole,” a concertgoer told YTN, according to the BBC.

Ukraine Passes Bill on Amnesty for East Ukraine Independence Supporters

188961166

Oleh Tyahnibok is the leader of the Neo-Nazi Ukrainian nationalist political party Svodoba, currently one of the five major parties of the country. Three members of the party hold positions in Ukraine’s government.

Topic: Situation in the South-East of Ukraine

KIEV, September 16 (RIA Novosti) – The parliament of Ukraine passed Tuesday a bill to declare amnesty for eastern Ukraine independence supporters who committed administrative or criminal offenses in their regions starting from February 22.

The initiative was approved by 277 lawmakers with the required minimum of 226 votes. It will enter force once signed by the president and published by the official media.

The discussions were held in a closed regime. It is currently unknown whether the initial bill was amended during hearings.

The bill, submitted to the parliament by President Petro Poroshenko, envisages that militia members and their supporters “are freed from criminal responsibility on the condition they do not hold anyone hostage, laid down their weapons and explosives, does not occupy administrative or other buildings or block state structures and organizations.”

Those who agree to the terms, will be freed from criminal responsibility or fines.

However, the bill does not apply to people suspected of grave crimes and those whom the Kiev government accused of involvement in the MH17 plane crash in eastern Ukraine (the MH17 jet was downed by the Ukrainian army!)  or posed hindrances to the investigation.

For the time being, no act has opted to pull out of its dates in Israel. The Neil Young and Crazy Horse concert scheduled for next week “will happen as planned” according to the promoter, and a show headlined by the Brian Jonestown Massacre will also continue.

Some performers, including Stevie Wonder, Talib Kweli and Jello Biafra have all vowed not to play Israel, more so out of solidarity than safety issues.

The first event during 2014 that inspired a wave of concert cancellations was the government coup in the Ukraine that put the fascists and Neo-nazis in the new government supported by the United States. The coup forced the Russian ethnic people of Crimea to self-determination with a 92% of the people opting to join the Russian Federation.

The current strife in Israel began when the bodies of three kidnapped Jewish bodies were found near Hebron, resulting in military strikes from the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip, followed by the kidnapping of a 16 year old Palestinian boy that was burnt alive by a group of jewish terrorists. Palestinian forces responded with rockets attacks to Israel. Social unrest over the deaths of four young boys, and the horrific beating of another Palestinian-American boy age 15 by the Israeli police, has led to more violence by both sides.
