Bali: A stampede incident left at least 174 people dead during a football match in Indonesia, media reports said on Sunday.

The incident is being seen by experts as the worst mishap to have taken place in a stadium.

About 180 were also hurt in aftermath of home team Arema FC's loss to bitter rivals at the overcrowded stadium late on Saturday in Malang, East Java, reports BBC.

The stampede started after police  tear-gassed fans who invaded the pitch.

As panic spread, thousands surged towards Kanjuruhan stadium's exits, where many suffocated, reports the British media.

One eyewitness told the BBC that police had fired numerous tear gas rounds "continuously and fast" after the situation with fans became "tense".
