July 16, 2017: Eight people were killed and around 40 people were seriously injured as a wall collapsed on to clashing supporters triggering a panicked stampede. Sports minister Matar Ba said a young girl was among the dead, while around 60 injured fans had been taken to health facilities in Dakar.

Senegal's official news agency Agence de Presse Senegalaise (APS), reported that fans from the opposing teams, US Ouakam and Stade De Mbour, exchanged blows and numerous projectiles were fired. As spectators tried to leave the stadium, APS said a wall collapsed under their weight.

Ambulances and fire trucks were dispatched to attend to the victims, while police used tear gas to disperse the large crowd. Senegal's President Macky Sall said on Twitter that those behind the tragedy would be punished.
