Halloween is a holiday celebrated worldwide on October 31, the night before the Western Christian holiday of All Hallows’ Day.

South Korea is looking for explanations after Halloween festivities in the nation’s capital Seoul turned into one of its greatest tragedies.

As they look into how a chaotic crush left at least 151 people dead, the government has proclaimed a time of national mourning.

Itaewon, a renowned nightlife district, was overrun by tens of thousands of costumed partygoers, largely teens and young adults, who came to celebrate South Korea’s first Halloween since the Covid regulations regarding crowd size and face mask usage were abolished.

Witnesses reported that partygoers were crammed so closely together that it was impossible to breathe or even move around.

According to him, the dead included at least 19 foreign nationals from countries including Iran, Norway, China, and Uzbekistan.

The Thai Foreign Ministry said that one of the victims was a Thai national.
