At least 15 killed in Congo football stadium stampede

At least 15 people were killed after police fired tear gas in a crowded football stadium in the Democratic Republic of Congo, provoking a stampede, officials say. Some 24 people were injured. Fans in the capital Kinshasa were reportedly angry after their local team was defeated by a team from the eastern town of Lubumbashi in a heated final. Officials say policemen then fired tear gas. Fans, blinded by the gas, ran in different directions, sometimes falling over each other. Stampedes are a frequent occurrence at crowded events in Congo. Last month at least 21 people were killed in a stampede at a music festival.
