Families and friends still searching for loved ones after Halloween stampede in Seoul


South Korea is in mourning tonight as police search for clues on how a night of festivities turned so tragic. Massive crowds of people were trying to fit through a 13-foot-wide street, with witnesses saying there were too few police around to control the mass of people. More than 150 people died, and at least 130 were injured. Authorities say nearly all victims were identified. Most were in their 20s and 30s and were mainly women.
