Multiple Injuries After Hadluka Explodes

Up to thirty people have been injured in an explosion at a Hadluka celebration in London that may have been sparked by a mobile phone.

A crowd of hundreds had gathered in Stamford Hill to observe Lag BaOmer, a festive day on which bonfires are a common tradition.

Footage of the incident showed a bonfire about to be lit with the sound of singing in the background as many people were stood within a few metres. Suddenly, a huge fireball erupted over the entire crowd. People panicked and ran screaming from the scene, witnesses said.

London Ambulance Service and the Jewish volunteer ambulance service Hatzola attended and treated "multiple patients" for burn injuries. The severity of the injuries is currently not known.

The cause of the explosion also remains unclear although several witnesses claimed a mobile phone had been thrown onto the bonfire.
