Cambodia mourns stampede victims
Cambodia has declared Thursday a national day of mourning after at least 345 people were killed in a stampede in the capital Phnom Penh.
Hundreds more were injured when people were crushed on a small island on the final day of the Water Festival.
Television cameras were broadcasting the festival live and caught much of the stampede.
Alastair Leithead describes what happened.
