30 injured in Juventus fan panic after bomb scare

Turin (Italy) (AFP) – A bomb scare triggered panic among Juventus fans assembled to watch the Champions League final in Turin on Saturday, leaving some 30 supporters injured, AFP reporters at the scene said.

Chaotic scenes ensued ten minutes before the end of the match, apparently triggered by fireworks being let off and one or more people shouting that a bomb had gone off.

That was enough to trigger a stampede out of the city’s Piazza San Carlo, in which the injuries occurred.

The incident compounded a miserable night for supporters of Juventus, who lost the Cardiff final 4-1 to Real Madrid.
