The football match between Senegal and Ivory Coast has been permanently suspended after a break of 40 minutes, as a result of incidents on the stadium, resulting ten wounded.
Ten people, including Senegalese Minister of Sports, El Hadji Malick Gakou, were slightly injured. The minister was hit with a stone and evacuated by doctors.

The situation degenerated after fans lit flares when Ivory Coast scored second goal by Didier Drogba in minute 73, and were close to qualifying.
Then they started to throw stones on the ground, bottles, chairs, and police intervened and used tear gas.
“After 40 minutes of interruption, was given the decision of definitive suspension of the match”, which was played on Léopold Sédar Senghor stadium in Dakar.
