oh okay, I thought there was some bombing?

No. BBC gave two reasons, but not violence related.

A spokesman for Karbala province's media office told the BBC that as hundreds of thousands of people undertook the Tuwairij run one person stumbled and fell over, causing others to fall and triggering the deadly stampede.

However, security officials told the Associated Press that the stampede began when a walkway collapsed.

this reminds me of the Hajj stampede, How does stampede even occur?

like if you run over a person by accident, don't you turn around to stop others behind you to run over the same guy. Or at least make a high voice tell them to stop

The Hajj stampede was an engineered mass killing of Shias specially Iranians but Karbala stampede is a real accident that maybe happens for weak management of crowd ,Tuwairij is very important for Iraqis & there is a famous story that Martyr Sadr one time saw Imam Mahdi (aj) between Tuwairij group because of that Iraqis have high respect for Tuwairij .

The force of people is such that it is hard to stop even if one tries.

Salaam,

It is with regret that there is news coming from Karbala that 31 people have died in a stampede in Karbala when a rod/barrier broke.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ)

There are also about 100 injured so please pray for them.

أَمَّنْ يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un

It's just in the moment, when people see other people running they'll run too because they may think that something has happened then it just becomes a pandemonium...

Iraqi Shia scholar offers condolences to victims of Ashura stampede

 

In a statement, one of the revered Najaf-based sources of emulation offered condolences ‎on the martyrdom of a number of mourners who were killed in a stampede in Karbala on the ‎day of Ashura.

According to Rasa News Agency’s correspondent in Najaf,‎ the office of Ayatollah ‎Bashir al-Najafi, one of the revered Najaf-based sources of emulation, issued a statement in ‎regard to the stampede which occurred in the holy city of Karbala on the Day of Ashura, ‎saying “The world is aware of the incident which occurred on during the Rakdhah al-Tuwayrij ‎‎[Tuwayrij run] rite on the day of the martyrdom of Imam al-Husayn as a result of the ‎crowding due to the presence of millions of lovers of Abu Abdillah al-Husayn.”‎
 

The message reads, “Hisham ibn Sālim asked Imam al-Sadiq about the reward of a person ‎who dies while performing the pilgrimage of Imam al-Husayn and the Imam replied, ‘The ‎angels escort him and bring him camphor and clothes from paradise and will accompany ‎them in their funerals is prayed over him after they are shrouded, the angels will perform ‎prayers on them and shroud them again over their existing shrouds. Then they will spread ‎basil under their bodies in their graves and will push the walls of their graves three miles in ‎every direction. Then a door from the doors of heaven will be opened to their graves and a ‎soothing breeze and its fragrance will fill their graves until the rising of the Hour.’”‎
