Death toll hits 102 from fireworks blast at India temple


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, India — Rescue officials on Monday sifted through a Hindu temple in southern India where more than 100 died when a fireworks display — an unauthorized pyrotechnic display that went horribly wrong — swept through for a religious festival packed with thousands.

The official death toll so far from the pre-dawn fire on Sunday at the Puttingal temple complex in the village of Paravoor, stood at 102 people with 380 others hurt, officials said, but local media reports said the figure was higher.
