Forty-one women and children have died after a fire broke out in a tent at a wedding near Kuwait City.

Guests were trampled in the stampede towards the only exit, as the tent was razed in just three minutes, a fire department chief told AP news agency.

Six of the dead were children. Up to 60 women and children were also injured in the tragedy on Saturday evening in the al-Jahra area, west of the capital.

The cause of the blaze is unknown. It is not clear if the bride escaped.

Wedding celebrations in the conservative Gulf state are held separately for men and women. Children attend the women's party.
