At least 129 people died at a football game in Indonesia, including police. About 200 other fans were injured.

After the chaotic meeting of the two groups of fans from Indonesia’s biggest clubs, the police fired tear gas. The stampede left many in the camp trampled or suffocated, local officials said.

The home team was defeated by 2 to 3. The fans of the club then invaded the field.

“There was mass mutiny, total anarchy. The fans also attacked the police,” the East Java police chief said.

Two police officers are among the dead.
