Chaotic Scenes Reported as Fans Arrive for Champions League Final

Chaotic and dangerous scenes were reported outside the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday, May 28, as Liverpool and Real Madrid fans arrived for Champions League final.

Reports that are yet to be confirmed said people without tickets had overwhelmed security and gained entry to the stadium, causing disorder and prompting security to block many ticketed Liverpool fans from entering.

Police then fired tear gas at some fans outside the security fence, and crowds were funneled into tight channels, prompting fears of a crush.
