At least 22 people were killed when a wall collapsed during a wedding party in northern India, the BBC reports.
The guests had taken shelter from heavy rain under a tin shack when a wall collapsed onto it in the storm.
Another 26 people were injured in the accident in Bharatpur, a district in Rajasthan state, 15 of them seriously.
Local media reports say food stalls had been set up along the wall for the wedding.
“The wall and a tin shed attached to it at the marriage venue collapsed due to a storm,” police officer Anil Tank is quoted as saying.
He said the wall was nearly 90ft (27m) long and 12-13ft in height and the collapse trapped many guests.
“The injured were rushed to nearby hospitals immediately and treatment was administered,” he said.
