Total insanity broke loose as Football fans (8 of them) were killed while trying to enter through one gate, which thousands of fans rushed to in order to get into the stadium in Cameroon.
At least eight people have been killed and 38 injured in a crush outside an Africa Cup of Nations football match in Cameroon.
Videos showed screaming fans being crushed at an entry gate to the Olembé stadium in the capital Yaoundé.
Witnesses described chaotic scenes outside the ground as thousands of fans struggled to get access.
Two boys, aged eight and 14, are among the dead, and seven people were seriously injured.
Cameroonian President Paul Biya ordered an investigation into the “tragic incident”. The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has also launched its own investigation, and says a minute’s silence will be observed at future matches as a mark of respect to those who died.
Officials say about 50,000 people tried to attend the match on Monday.
The stadium has a capacity of 60,000 but it was not meant to be more than 80% full for the game because of Covid restrictions.
