Use of tear gas by police triggers horrific disaster at a soccer stadium in Indonesia

At least 125 people have died in a crush at an Indonesian football match that has become one of the world’s worst stadium disasters. Hundreds were also hurt in aftermath of home team Arema FC’s loss to bitter rivals at the overcrowded stadium late on Saturday in Malang, East Java. The crush took place after police tear-gassed fans who invaded the pitch.


As panic spread, thousands surged towards Kanjuruhan stadium’s exits, where many suffocated. Fifa, the world’s governing football body, states that no “crowd control gas” should be carried or used by stewards or police at matches. One eyewitness told the BBC that police had fired numerous tear gas rounds “continuously and fast” after the situation with fans became “tense”.
