8 People Dead in Malawi's Bingu National Stadium Stampede

Eight (8) people have been reported dead in a stampede at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe, Malawi on Thursday.

According to reports, the tragedy occurred while people were trying to gain entrance into the stadium for a friendly match between Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers.

The country's 53rd independence celebrations turned sour after police fired tear gas, causing a panic with some falling down in the process.

It was gathered that hundreds were already at the stadium gate by 6:30 am, which was the time set but the gates were opened hours later when thousands had gathered which caused the stampede.
