At least 12 dead in stampede at El Salvador soccer stadium

San Salvador, May 21 (BNA): At least 12 people were killed and an undetermined number injured in a stampede at a soccer stadium in El Salvador Saturday, the Central American government said on Twitter.

Reuters reported that Alianza and Deportivo Fez will play the quarter-final match on Saturday night at Cuscatlan Stadium in the capital, San Salvador.
