    Seven dead at kite-flying festival
    From correspondents in Lahore
    February 16, 2004

    SEVEN people were killed and more than 100 injured in Pakistan during the annual kite flying festival marking the arrival of spring, officials said today.

    An 18-month-old girl's throat was cut by a stray kite string while she was travelling with her parents on a motorbike, witnesses said, adding that she died on the spot.

    Three people were electrocuted when metal wires they were using to fly or catch stray kites fell on live electric lines, and two people fell from roofs, hospital officials said.

    A 12-year-old boy died while trying to catch a stray kite when he was hit by a car on a main road, police said.

    More than 100 people had been reported injured since last night in various kite-related accidents, medical workers said.
    Officials at Lahore's Mayo Hospital said 42 children and 60 adults had been treated for injuries.

    "One child was injured by a stray bullet," deputy medical superintendent Dr Saqib Shafi told AFP.

    Though firing guns is banned, people celebrate the spring festival by firing into the air, often causing casualties.

    Relatives of people killed or injured in kite flying accidents held a demonstration in Lahore last year urging the government to maintain its ban on selling and flying kites.

    More than 20 people have been killed in kite flying accidents in Lahore since last year's spring festival.

    Casualties and frequent power outages caused by metal wires falling over power lines forced the government to ban the sale of kites and metal wire, but those restrictions were lifted this month to celebrate the festival, officials said.

    Hey, you are making a pretty big generalization. They are pretty fuckin retarded to have this much bullshit happen flying kites, sounds like the whole thing might have been terrifying. I dont know about Paki's but I know one hella cool Afghan. He used to live down the hall from me, he's a badass breakdancer.
