Nineteen people were trampled to death and at least 340 injured in a stampede at the Love Parade dance party in Duisburg, according to an updated toll issued by police Sunday.

The earlier toll given out by local authorities during the night was 18 dead and 80 injured.

Authorities did not say whether any foreigners were among the victims.

The day-long open-air music festival traditionally attracts revellers from all around the world. An estimated 1.4 million ravers attended this year's event, according to organisers.
