Four foreigners are among the 19 victims of the stampede in Germany's Love Parade techno music festival, police said Sunday.

The dead included an Australian woman, an Italian woman, a Dutch man and a Chinese man, local police chief Detlef von Schmeling told a news conference.

Only 16 of the 19 people crushed to death in the stampede have been identified by early Sunday, Von Schmeling said.

Those identified were aged between 20 and 40, he said.

The police official told reporters that 16 people died at the scene of the disaster, at the entrance to the tunnel leading to the festival field, but that nobody died in the tunnel itself.
