Six foreigners were among the 19 victims of the stampede at Germany's Love Parade techno music festival, a police spokesman said Sunday.

The dead included an Australian woman, an Italian woman, a Dutch man and a Chinese woman and two people from Spain. Police had previously said a Chinese man was among the dead.

The 19 victims were aged between 20 and 40, authorities said.

Police have said that 16 people died at the scene of the disaster, at the entrance to a sole tunnel leading to the festival grounds, but that no one died in the tunnel itself.

In Madrid, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said that the two Spanish victims were university students.

"Their parents have been informed and they are on their way to claim their ... remains," she told AFP.
