In June 2007, a stampede started by fans who wanted to re-enter the Konkola Stadium in the northern Copperbelt mining town of Chililabombwe, Zambia, caused the death of 12 people who were crushed trying to leave. The Africa Cup qualifier between Zambia and the Republic of Congo (3-0) had already been delayed an hour because of the late arrival of Sudanese referee Khalid Abdel Rahman. Abdel Rahman, who earlier had missed his plane to Zambia arrived just three hours before kick-off.
