Players, staff evacuate Aswan Stadium pitch

Posted on January 29, 2016


Players, officials and technical staff evacuated the Aswan Stadium pitch in a hurry less than half an hour into the friendly match between and Libya.

The players and officials were rubbing their eyes in pain, which would suggest the presence of tear gas around the stadium, but no official statement has been made at this moment.

Reports are emerging that the reason is that a group of fans outside the stadium attempted to enter forcefully, which prompted security forces to retaliate with tear gas, but nothing has been confirmed.

The Nile Sport correspondent at the stadium gave the same account, and the players return to the pitch 15 minutes after the incident.
