 Tragedy struck at Kanjuruhan Stadium on Saturday, October 1st as 133 people were killed due to a stampede of those in attendance. The cause of the panic and stampede is largely thought to be the use of tear gas deployed by officers as crowd control. The president said “Kanjuruhan stadium in Malang … we will demolish it and rebuild according to FIFA standards.” Six people have already been charged, three of them being police officers.
