Stampede at soccer game kills 7 in Kenya

October 24, 2010|By Faith Karimi, CNN

A stampede that killed at least seven soccer fans in the Kenyan capital started after a group without tickets tried to storm through a stadium entrance, a game official said Sunday.

The incident occurred Saturday at a Nairobi stadium where longtime rivals AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia were playing. “Some people piled in one gate because they didn’t have tickets,” said Frank Okoth, a manager at Kenyan Premier League. “It was raining heavily, and they found a gate with a weak structure, so they pushed through it.”
