Family mourn proud fan killed in Indonesia soccer crush

STORY: "Until the end of his life, he was proud of being an Arema supporter," said his wife Eka Wulandari.

His wife and other grieving family members held evening prayers for Junaedi this week, according to Muslim traditions.

Junaedi's family only found out he was among the victims who had been brought to hospital through a friend. An hour later, they collected his body and buried him the next day, even though they were not sure exactly how he had died.

Hospital officials have said many of the dead suffocated, as panicked fans were caught in a crush at a stadium exit after police fired tear gas to disperse home fans, who had poured onto the pitch after a 3-2 home defeat to Persebaya Surabaya.
