Seven Dead in Kenyan Stampede

Seven football fans died Saturday trying to enter a stadium to watch a football match between Kenya's two most popular teams.
CBS News said that six people died while trying to enter the Nyayo National Stadium and got run over by the crowd and one more died at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
Access to the football match at the stadium was limited which got the crowd anxious and they tried to force their way in, BBC said.
The football match was between Gor Mahia and the AFC Leopards, which continued as planned despite the stampede and deaths, BBC said.
