Six dead and dozens hurt in nightclub stampede in Italy

The incident took place at a packed club hosting a concert by popular Italian rapper Sfera Ebbasta near the coastal city of Ancona.

There was panic after pepper spray was sacked inside the club, according to the BBC, citing other reports. Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said there possibly was a "stink" that could have been ammonia or another substance. According to Associated Press, one of the survivors said that some of the emergency exits were locked when the attendees tried to escape the building. But Salvini said initial investigation "appears to knock down that possibility". He said that when rescuers arrived, all the doors were open.

He said he did not have confirmation from survivors that the use of an irritating spray, like pepper spray, had set off the panic.

"We will find those responsible for these six broken lives, those who out of malice, stupidity or greed have turned a party night into a tragedy", he added in a statement.

The dead included three girls and two boys and an adult woman, a mother who had accompanied her daughter to the disco in Corinaldo, where an Italian rapper was entertaining the crowd, police chief Oreste Capocasa said in nearby Ancona.
