  1. Aljazeera disables comments on too many videos. I say as long as they do this, we should give bad ratings to all aljazeera videos. If they treat their youtube audience with such contempt and disdain, they do not deserve any good ratings.

    I will stop if i no longer see censorship of comments for at least a few days.

  2. How can you be so impatient to get home after a spectacle that you would push people forcing groups to step on other people? Never push in a crowd. If you are so impatient that you cannot keep from pushing others then don’t go out to crowded events. What a horrible way to start a new year.

  3. @endtimelmission Really. This could have been avoided if they had the correct safety measures followed.

  4. Allasane you are a moron, you have order to maintain but you are a fucking idiot but then you can say like everyone else meh i aint perfect, what a copout, you wanna be president? be a father to your people first you dimwitt..

  5. My condolences to the families. Next time Big Screens so everyone can see, or an elevated platform. This sucks. so sad.

  6. Go email them instead of spamming the videos, I’ll mark you for spam for now and give this video a thumbs up to spite you, happy new year.

  7. not enough entries and exits. too small entries and exits.

    thats why in newer stadiums the entries and exits tend to get bigger and bigger.

  8. Did I say you had to? No, dumb fuck. I didn’t expect you to. Try trolling someone else, and GET OUT OF MY WAY.

  9. sorry but you are an idiot. Of course if you message to protest, it helps to multiply the message by making it public.

  10. They do literally shit in their own drinking water though, it’s actually a real problem in West African nations like this one and Liberia. There to poor to fund sewage projects so their citizen shit in the streets and near their water source.

  11. My condloences to the people of Ivory Coast. The latest news report suspects (based on eyewitness accounts) that wooden barricades , which were not set up by the authorities, was put there, blocking the exit route so that pickpockets and phone thieves could execute their plan.
    But, the when the baricades slowed the front crowd, there was a push from the back end of the crowd, which was caused the stampede.

  12. I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions sites. The site that has the best deals is

    ★ ☆ saveblast,Com ☆ ★

    and I checked with the bbb and was told that it is all legit How they can sell gift cards, laptops, ,,
    cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off
    I don’t know I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250
    Loews gift cards for $48.Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else

  13. Ah, reduced to personal attacks?(petty) Your message is one of annoyance to this audience, evident by your constant thumbs down rating. This is their channel they can block comments as much as they want. Continue to be a petty and immature human, I will rate the video based on content not of some presumed offence that "should" be taken because they have control over their own channel.

  14. need more police there too stop trouble makers who do this ! ya know crowd control sham on the Government of the Ivory Coast ………….

  15. kill someone? are you fucking retarded?why you so unbalanced? and what is this word "mutha fuckers" are you a fucking idiot? you know what you are saying right? you took english?not understanding what ya all saying is yur problem yu all too lazy, must be the water or food poisoning and the air maybe but ya um check yur language and grow up "idiot rap is dead" by the way it just dont know it yet but some people hang onto retardation because they dont have a brain, ever seen the wizard of oz?

  17. sounds plausible, something like this, combined with exits that are too small to begin with, are often to blame for such stampedes.
