Six people are reported to have been killed and dozens hurt in a crush

outside a stadium hosting an Africa Cup of Nations match in Cameroon.

Video footage showed football fans struggling to get access to the Paul Biya

stadium in a neighbourhood of the capital Yaounde.

Naseri Paul Biya, governor of Cameroon’s central region, said there may be

more casualties, AP News said.

Another report said a number of children had lost consciousness.

The stadium has a capacity of 60,000 but because of Covid restrictions it

was not meant to be more than 80% full.

Match officials were quoted as saying that some 50,000 people were trying

to attend.

A crush at the entrance to the stadium caused “half a dozen deaths and

dozens have been injured”, reported state broadcaster CRTV.

The last 16 match between Cameroon and Comoros took place despite the

incident and ended with a 2-1 win for the hosts.
