(PJ Media) Arema Football Club of East Java’s Malang city sported a 23-year undefeated record at home. That streak came to an end on Saturday night against Persebaya of Surabaya as Arema fell 3-2.
The disappointed fans stormed the field, throwing rocks, bottles, and anything else handy at players and officials. Then police began firing tear gas — not just at the crowds on the field but, inexplicably, at people in the stands. The chaos resulted in dozens of people among the 43,000 in the stadium being trampled to death. Many others were suffocated.
