Indonesian President Joko Widodo has ordered an investigation of a deadly stadium panic, after 174 football fans died at a stadium in the city of Malang on the island of Java.
Riot police fired tear gas at fans who streamed onto the pitch after a match between two Indonesian teams. The local chief of police said many of the deaths happened when spectators rushed for two exits while trying to escape from the stadium. Most were trampled, while some suffocated in the crush of people. It’s one of the deadliest stadium tragedies in modern history.
