JAKARTA---Seventeen people were killed in a sta-
dium stampede after spectators rioted to protest a
local boxer s loss in a championship match in eastern
Indonesia, officials said Monday.
Youth and Sports Minister Roy Suryo said the vic-
tims---11 of them women---were trampled to death
as about 1,500 spectators scrambled out the over-
crowded stadium to escape the riot that broke out
just before midnight Sunday. Kota Lama Sport Sta-
dium has a capacity of 500 to 600, he said. Police
said it had two working exits.
Thirty-two people are being treated at hospital for
injuries. A total of 84 boxers participated in the Bupati
(Regent) Cup Championships that started July 9 in
the Papua province town of Nabire, Suryo said.
The riot happened after the final of the 128-pound
division between Alvius Rumkorem and Yulianus
Pigome, who Suryo said are from different tribes.
Points awarded by a panel of judges to Rumkorem
triggered protests by Pigome supporters, Suryo said.
The losing boxer s supporters threw chairs at the
judges and the winner s supporters responded by
throwing bottles and broken chairs, panicking people
in the stadium, said Lt Col Gede Sumerta, a provincial
Police and soldiers were deployed to stop the fight-
ing, Sumerta said. (AP)
BOGOTA---Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos
and his Venezuela counterpart, Nicolas Maduro,
plan to meet next week in a bid to improve relations
after a diplomatic spat in May triggered by Santos
meeting with Venezuela s main opposition leader.
Maduro was infuriated by what he called Santos
"betrayal" for meeting Henrique Capriles, who nar-
rowly lost Venezuela s presidential election in April,
and accused Santos of being part of a plot to overthrow
"On Monday I will meet on the border with Pres-
ident Maduro for a complete revision of the state of
relations," Santos said in a message from his Twitter
account yesterday. He did not specify on which side
of the border the meeting would take place.
Maduro confirmed the planned meeting but said
the precise location had not yet been determined.
"We go with the best good faith, the best goodwill,"
Maduro said from the presidential palace in Caracas.
"We believe in the coexistence of brothers, in the
peaceful coexistence of different models and we will
talk with President Santos and hopefully re-establish
the rules of play for the prosperity of both our nations."
The nations have had patchy relations for the past
decade due largely to ideological differences, but cen-
tre-right Santos diplomatic approach since taking
office in 2010 has eased tensions.
Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin
said this week relations with Caracas were "a little
cold" but added that dialogue had continued since
the diplomatic dispute. Monday s meeting would be
the two leaders first encounter since the spat.
Capriles visit to Colombia s presidential palace
was part of a planned tour of Latin American nations
to press his case that the election that Maduro won
by a margin of 1.5 percentage points was fraudulent.
Maduro, the political heir of late socialist President
Hugo Chavez, put bilateral relations under review
and questioned whether Venezuela would remain
involved in peace talks held in Cuba between the
Colombian government and Marxist FARC rebels.
