129 killed in a brawl at an Indonesian football match


Authorities said that at least 129 people perished at a football stadium in Indonesia when tens of thousands of fans swarmed the field and police shot tear gas, causing a stampede.

One of the deadliest sports stadium accidents in the history of the sport occurred on Saturday night in the eastern city of Malang.

Fans of Arema FC flooded the field late on Saturday after their team’s 3-2 defeat to Persebaya Surabaya, a visiting team and fierce rival, at the Kanjuruhan stadium.

After two cops were killed, police said they tried to get spectators to return to the stands by using tear gas and calling the unrest “riots.”
