Scores injured as mouse sparks Casablanca mosque crush

A mouse triggered panic and a crush in a Casablanca mosque has left more than 80 injured, mostly women, the Moroccan news agency MAP reported.

The incident occurred in the city’s Hassan II mosque, which was packed during evening prayers Tuesday, the holiest night of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, MAP said.

“Eighty-one people, mostly women, suffered light injuries and fractures while some of them fainted,” it said.

The panic broke out after a woman raised the alarm over the mouse, sparking a sudden exodus of screaming worshippers.

    So burning people alive and beheading babies doesn’t phase them but a mouse finally gets through that dense layer on apathy to cause fear and an offence.

    Allah is so funny.
