Six people are reported to have been killed and dozens hurt in a crush outside a stadium hosting an Africa Cup of Nations match in Cameroon.

Video footage showed football fans struggling to get access to the Paul Biya stadium in a neighbourhood of the capital Yaounde.

Naseri Paul Biya, governor of Cameroon’s central region, said there may be more casualties, AP News said.

Another report said a number of children had lost consciousness.

The last 16 match between Cameroon and Comoros took place despite the incident and ended with a 2-1 win for the hosts.
