Haiti Carnival Parade Electrocution Stampede

At least 16 people died and 78 were injured when a float hit power lines in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince, on the second day of an annual festival.

The float caught fire after it hit a high-voltage overhead power cable, witnesses said.

Video of the incident appeared to show the electric cable catch the head of a singer from popular Haitian hip-hop band Barikad Crew.

The rap group's star singer, who goes by the name Fantom, was struck directly by the fallen cable and is in a critical condition, the website Haiti Press Network said.

Seven people were reported dead on the float, and others were killed in the ensuing panic.

Many of those who died were dancers and musicians on the float.

Thousands of people have joined a memorial march to pay their respects to the victims.

Local television showed Haitian president Michel Martelly leading mourners in a 'parade in white', walking through the same streets where the carnival event was held the previous day.

The president lit candles on a white cake in memory of the victims.

It marks the beginning of three days of national mourning, with flags to be flown at half-mast on all public buildings.

National funerals will be held on Saturday.
