Clashes between supporters of two Indonesian soccer teams in East Java province have killed 125 fans and 2 police officers, mostly trampled to death.

Several brawls between supporters of the two rival soccer teams were reported inside the stadium after the Indonesia premier league game ended with Persebaya beating Arema 3-2.

East Java’s police chief says the fighting prompted riot and police to fire tear gas, causing panic among supporters.

Hundreds ran to an exit gate in an effort to avoid the tear gas. Some suffocated in the chaos and others were trampled. More than 300 have been rushed to nearby hospitals for their injuries.
