At least 17 people have been killed in a stampede at a football stadium in the northern Angolan city of Uige.

Hundreds more were reported to have been injured when supporters stormed the gates after failing to gain entry.

Some of those who fell became trapped and suffocated at the venue yesterday, and witnesses said the crowd trying to gain access would have taken the stadium past its 8,000 capacity.
