They said only one entrance to the 60,000-capacity stadium was open. It was unclear how many people were inside at the time of the crush. No official toll was given, but an AFP journalist at the scene counted seven dead and dozens injured. The public hospital was forced to turn victims away due to a lack of capacity, according to spokesman Tayo Haastrup.
