    Yikes, those crazy soccer dudes!!!

    KINSHASA, Congo (AP) - Accusations that a soccer player was using witchcraft during a match in eastern Congo sparked a riot that killed 13 people, a U.N.-funded radio station reported Monday.


    Most of the victims were between the ages of 11 and 16, Radio Okapi said. They were suffocated as panicked crowds ran for the exits during the mayhem Sunday in Butembo in eastern Congo's North Kivu province.

    Radio Okapi said police tried to control the violence at Matokeo stadium by firing into the air to protect their commander, who was hit in the head and wounded by fans.

    The two local clubs involved were Socozaki and Nyuki System, the radio said.

    Dozens of teenagers marched through Butembo's dirt streets Monday in protest, and the regional governor, Julien Mpaluku, paid a visit to the hospital.
    Paging CW and Hamp! :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I'd like to point out the Gunners were not involved in this game and do not engage in witchcraft or sorcery.

    West Ham, on the other hand.....:D
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!
