At least 18 people have been killed and more than 40 injured in a stampede in India's western city of Mumbai.

Local officials say the incident happened when thousands of mourners gathered at the home of a Muslim spiritual leader who died yesterday.

Reports suggest people were crushed after the gates of the house where the body of Syedna Mohammed were kept were closed.

Hundreds of people across India have died in similar tragedies in recent years.

In October, 115 people were crushed in a stampede at a Hindu festival in the central state of Madhya Pradesh.
