Indonesian soccer fans clash with rival fans on the pitch

129 dead after fans stampede to exit Indonesian soccer match.

Lions players were being kept behind the goal by security and police, before they were driven out of the stadiums in riot vans.

On the pitch, fans were clashing with rival fans, and fans ran onto the pitch, where they were punched and stamped on.

One video shows a man lying on the field, with his body bleeding while others are seen throwing things at him.

In another video, fans are seen throwing bottles and a fire extinguisher onto the pitch, which sparks a fire.

An ambulance arrives and a man is helped to safety on the ground.

Footage shows one person holding onto a fan who is lying on the pitch.

Some fans were said to have been sent on foot to the back of the stadium after the match to protest against Indonesia’s president, Joko Widodo, whose first election as president in 2014 was marked by widespread protests against his perceived authoritarianism.

The incident saw thousands of supporters, some wearing the traditional green and white colours of Indonesian soccer, running out onto the pitch and into the crowd of fans, a rare occurrence after a large number of fans were sent home, including hundreds of children.

The match itself was delayed for more than two hours after Indonesian police and security intervened in order to keep fans away from the pitch.

It is a long time since a fan stampede took place during an international match.

The violence is the latest in a series of incidents following the Jakarta derby between the second-tier clubs of the Indonesian football league and the national side, which saw fans of home country teams clash with those of visiting teams and security personnel.

It comes after the Indonesian government, led by Joko Widodo, faced criticism for a series of arrests over the last two weeks, including those of two anti-corruption activists.

In 2016, an angry mob attacked a football fan during a soccer match in Surabaya. The crowd attacked him for not having a photo of himself on his shirt and then torched his home in protest.
