Ghana: Remembering the victims of 'Africa's worst stadium disaster'

Ghanaians have been marking 15 years since 127 people died at a stadium in Ghana's capital, Accra.

Fans lost their lives in a stampede that occurred during a match between Kumasi Asante Kotoko and arch rivals Accra Hearts of Oak at the Accra sports stadium.

There was an official commemoration in Accra:

The incident has been described as the worst football disaster in Africa.

An enquiry into the disaster recommended that stadium infrastructure, security and first-aid should be improved.

But there have been complaints that the recommendations have not been implemented.

And families of those who died say they have not been compensated as was promised.
