Football fans injured after barrier collapses at Kuwait stadium

More than 30 football fans were injured when a glass barrier collapsed at a stadium in Kuwait City.

The incident happened on Friday evening after Omani fans gathered to greet their team after a win against the United Arab Emirates in the Arabian Gulf Cup finals.

Prime minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah has ordered an investigation into the accident, Kuwait's state-run news agency reported.

The tournament had been planned to take place in Qatar this year before a row erupted among Gulf states.
