Senegalese team suspended after stadium deaths

US Ouakam have been suspended by Senegal’s Football Federation (FSF) following a stampede which resulted in the deaths of eight fans.

Nearly 100 other spectators were injured as Ouakam fans clashed with those of rivals Stade de Mbour during Saturday’s League Cup final.

The FSF’s disciplinary committee will decide on sanctions against Ouakam shortly, it added. According to reports, multiple witnesses revealed that they saw Ouakam fans throw stones and other objects at the Mbour supporters.

This came moments after the visiting side had taken a 2-1 lead in extra-time of the final.

A wall at the Demba Diop stadium in the capital Dakar collapsed following the fighting between fans.

Police responded with tear gas, sparking the stampede.
