The UAE has expressed its solidarity with South Korea following the death of hundreds of people in a stampede in the country's capital Seoul.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) extended its condolences and sympathy to the South Korean government and people and to the families of victims.

It also wished a speedy recovery to those who were injured in the incident.

At least 153 people were killed in a crush on Saturday night as huge crowds choked the narrow streets of Seoul's Itaewon nightlife area to celebrate Halloween.
