695 Dead, 180 injured

I'm of two minds as to the cause of the human stampede that lead to the deaths of so many people. My first thought is that is was a case where someone half overheard someone nearby in the crowd worrying about the damage a suicide bomber could do in a crowd of several hundred thousand. My second thought is simply that it was a brilliant piece of psychological warfare on the part of some insurgent leader. Either way the largest mass death in Iraq since the invasion has occurred and there's little to indicate it couldn't happen again.
