At least 125 people are dead and hundreds more are injured. It happened yesterday in Indonesia at a football match between two rival teams. It was a close game, and the moment the game ended– about three thousand people stormed the field.
Police started firing tear gas in response. Some fans started attacking officers and destroying property. As panic spread thousands of people ran toward the stadium exits where many suffocated. The president of Indonesia has ordered that all matches in Indonesia’s top league must be stopped until an investigation has been carried out.
Our hearts are certainly with all the families impacted by the tragic loss.
