At least 174 people died in a stampede at a soccer match in Indonesia in one of the worst stadium disasters. At least 180 more people were injured after home team Arema lost to arch-rivals Persebaya at a packed stadium in Malang, East Java.
The stampede happened after the police used tear gas to disperse the fans that entered the field. Panic spread and thousands rushed to the Kanjuhuran Stadium exits at once, with many suffocating.
Indonesian officials said the 38,000-capacity stadium was overcrowded by 4,000 people. According to videos on social media, some fans descended on the field after the referee signaled the end of the game, which ended with a 3-2 victory for the visiting team.
