More than 170 killed in Indonesia stadium crush

STORY: When frustrated supporters of the losing home team invaded the pitch in Malang in the province of East Java late on Saturday (October 1), officers fired tear gas in an attempt to control the situation, triggering the stampede and cases of suffocation, East Java police chief Nico Afinta told reporters.

The head of one of the hospitals in the area treating patients told Metro TV that some of the victims had sustained brain injuries and that the fatalities included a five-year-old child.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has ordered the Football Association of Indonesia to suspend all games in Indonesia's top league until an investigation is complete.
