Hindu gods abandon followers: 110 killed, 350 injured in Hindu temple fire

At least 110 people were killed and more than 350 others injured in a massive fire that broke out during a fireworks display at Puttingal Hindu temple in Kollam, in the southern Indian state of Kerala early Sunday morning, officials have said.
