Collapsed wall kills eight at stadium in Senegal

Eight people are reported dead while about 49 others have been injured at a football stadium in Senegal.
It occurred at Demba Diop stadium in the capital, Dakar, at the end of the League Cup final between Stade de Mbour and Union Sportive Ouakam, reports the BBC.


The BBC reports that fighting started between rival fans. The police intervened with tear gas, provoking panic and a stampede which led to the collapse of the wall.
Further reports say the spokesman for the president has announced a halt in election campaign on Sunday as a sign of respect, and that there should be "punishments serving as a warning", according to the BBC.
The score at the end of normal play time was 1-1. During the first period of extra time Mbour scored to take the lead. When the final whistle went off violence broke out.
