Young Filmgoers Killed




KIEV -- Four Ukrainian schoolchildren were crushed to death when spectators leaving a movie theater collided in a narrow passage with students rushing forward to find seats for the movie "Armageddon."


At least 16 people were injured in the accident Monday in Chervonohrad in the western Lviv region, Itar-Tass said.


The dead children, three boys and a girl, were between 11 and 14 years old.


About 800 children total from five schools in Chervonohrad came to the two afternoon showings of the film, Interfax said.
