The vast majority of Omani football fans who were injured a day earlier while celebrating their country’s Arabian Gulf Cup win have been discharged from hospital, Kuwait’s Public Authority for Sport (PAS) said yesterday.
A number of Kuwaiti officials have consistently checked on the wellbeing of the Omani fans, who plunged to the ground at the packed Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium on Friday after a glass barrier shattered, PAS’ Director General Dr Homoud Flaiteh told reporters.
He added that a probe has been launched into the circumstances surrounding the unfortunate mishap.
