Indonesia: In a football stadium stampede, 32 children die



At least 32 of the victims of the recent stadium stampede in Indonesia were children between the ages of 3 and 17, according to a representative of the ministry of women’s empowerment and child protection.
More than 129 people have died as a result of the violence that erupted during a football game in the Indonesian League as a result of the police using tear gas to break up fights, according to a previous report from Akahi News.
In a previous report, a ministry official responsible for women’s empowerment and child protection estimated that 17 children had perished; however, a new account of the incident has revealed that 32 children perished in the stampede.
Mahfud MD, Indonesia’s chief security minister, said the incident would be looked into by a team of soccer experts, fact-finding investigators, and government representatives.
The group would be prepared to determine what took place at the event and who was to blame.
In the meantime, a police and sports delegation has arrived in Malang to investigate one of the worst stadium disasters ever.
The President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, has authorized a suspension of all Liga 1 games until the investigation is finished.
In addition, Mahfud stated that the injuries of the victims would be treated for free and that 50 million rupiah would be allocated to compensate the children’s families.
