An unimaginable tragedy has “plunged” into mourning in Indonesia, as the Asian country mourns many deaths from incidents after the end of a football match, while there are reports that the number of victims is higher.
The latest information transmitted by the Times of Indonesia says that at least 122 people have died, but this has not been confirmed by official sources.
Images of chaos
Chaotic scenes unfolded after the end of the football match, Araba – Persebaya for the championship of Indonesia and the international media broadcast a scene of hell with dozens of dead.
More specifically, an angry crowd stormed the pitch, with riot police firing tear gas and causing chaos.
This resulted in panic with many people running and being trampled and there were countless cases of fainting. What followed, however, surpasses all previous ones.
According to what the major news agencies are reporting, the dead may exceed sixty, while some even speak of a hundred.
The latest information states that children are among the victims and it is easy to see that the prevailing situation is chaotic.
It should be noted that there are “sources” that talk about the use of weapons by the police forces, while the clashes between police and fans continued outside the stadium.
From the fierce clashes between the police forces and fans there are also many injured, who have been treated in hospitals located near the stadium.
The situation seems to be very difficult in terms of the efforts of the doctors to help the injured, as the hospitals have been filled with fans in need of medical assistance.
The Indonesian government has announced the postponement of all matches scheduled for the next seven days.
