Police seek 10 in connection with fire at Indian temple that killed 109 people


At least 10 people associated with a temple that went up in flames early Sunday, killing more than 100, are on the run, authorities said.
Police are looking for the individuals in relation to the fireworks accident at the Puttingal temple in the southern Indian city of Kollam, police spokesman Anantha Krishnean told CNN.
More than 500 people were injured and 109 were killed after an errant firework ignited a stockpile of other fireworks at the temple, causing a larger blaze.
The temple, which which was celebrating the Hindu new year over Saturday night into Sunday, has a long history of using fireworks in celebrations, sometimes setting off pyrotechnics that appear low to the ground.
