Tragic incident after soccer match investigated in Indonesia

Jakarta, Oct 2 (Prensa Latina) The president of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, ordered the investigation of the incident that occurred after a soccer match in East Java, which caused the death of 130 people and injured 180 others.

The coordinating Minister of Human Development and Culture, Muhadjir Efendi, said that the police will begin investigations to determine the causes and those responsible for the tragedy.

The event was triggered after the match between the teams Arema FC and Persebaya Surabaya at Kanjuruhan Stadium in Malang district, East Java province, on Saturday night, Antara News reported.

In addition to the suspension of all matches in the country’s soccer league, the president ordered compensation for the families of the deceased and payment for the medical treatment of the injured.
