Italy nightclub stampede kills six and injures 100

Six people have been killed and more than 100 injured, 10 of them seriously, in a stampede at a nightclub in Italy, officials say.

The incident took place near the eastern coastal city of Ancona.

Some reports say there was panic after pepper spray was fired inside the club in the town of Corinaldo.

The Lanterna Azzurra club was hosting a concert by rapper Sfera Ebbasta and up to 1,000 people were thought to be inside.
