Valletta Stampede – 1823

The Times of Malta are reporting today the dreadful case of about 100 children who died during a stampede at a Valletta convent during carnival 192 years ago (here).

I have found two articles from 1823 describing the scene (click the images to read the article, then click again to open the image)):
