INDIA -- At least 36 people are dead after being trampled in a stampede at a train station.
Railway officials announced a last-minute change in the platform while tens of thousands of people waited to board a train that triggered the chaos.
Almost all of the people at the station were religious pilgrims on their way to Sangam, India, where the Ganges and two other rivers converge.
This religious festival attracts more than 30 million attendees every year.
