Indonesia sets up team to probe soccer stampede; police use of tear gas in focus

Quick Summary

Indonesia has set up an independent team to investigate a crowd crush at a soccer stadium that killed 125 people, authorities said Monday.

Home side Arema FC had lost the match 3-2 to Persebaya Surabaya, though authorities had said tickets were not issued to Persebaya fans over security concerns.

Indonesia’s chief security minister Mahfud MD said the government would form an independent fact-finding team, including academics and soccer experts as well as government officials, to probe what happened.
