Health Minister Ummy Mwalimu has issued a preliminary report on injuries at Benjamin Huwa Stadium in Dar es Salaam, where he said that so far Temeke Regional Referral Hospital has received 30 casualties and that a man in his 40s has died.

Ummy said: "Most of the injured are doing well with minor injuries, they are continuing to be tested, and the team from the Dar es Salaam Regional Medical Office is on the field, monitoring closely to see if there are any other injuries."

Although the Ministry of Health has not yet said what circumstances the man died in, some fans were seen jumping the fence and others breaking into the stadium, while others entered by pushing through one of the stadium's stadiums to witness the first African Confederations Cup final between Yanga and Algeria's USM Alger which ended with the hosts 2-1.
