Seville Easter panic was ‘not preorganised’

  • Police believe the disruption was down to ‘common criminals’

Authorities met this week to analyse what was behind sporadic incidents early last Friday morning during Seville’s Holy Week processions that spread panic among crowds. Police have said that the disruption was down to ‘common criminals’ and was not organised. It followed a similar panic incident and stampede over a minor dispute over some seats during Malaga’s ‘El Cautivo’ procession.
