Dozens injured when barricade collapses in Kuwait's Gulf Cup
KUWAIT CITY: Kuwait's state-run news agency (KUNA) says more than 30 football fans, most from Oman, sustained injuries when a glass barricade collapsed in a stadium in Kuwait City.
The incident occurred Friday evening after fans gathered on the barricade to greet the Omani team, which beat the United Arab Emirates in a penalty shootout to win the Arabian Gulf Cup finals.
KUNA says the prime minister ordered a committee to attend to injured fans. Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah also ordered an investigation into the incident.
The news agency published pictures Saturday of the prime minister and others visiting the injured fans in a hospital in Kuwait.
