Referee brutally attacked in Africa

A play-off match in the Democratic Republic of Congo descended into utter chaos after a referee was brutally attacked by a pack of field invaders. Daring Club Motema Pembe (DCMP) and Dauphin Noir, both of the Super Ligue, Congo's top tier, engaged in a scoreless draw before emotions boiled over upon the full-time whistle, and supporters stormed the field to attack the referee.
Upon hearing the final whistle, spectators burst onto the field and chased down the match officials. The referee desperately attempted to flee the melee, but he was tackled to the ground as a large group of fans piled in to beat him. Riot police tried to protect the referee, who can be seen with a severely swollen, with bleeding face and a black eye. He was beaten so badly by fans he was forced to leave the pitch on a stretcher under the protection of police.
Fans also caused damage to the stadium itself as they rioted, with seats ripped out and smashed on the field and windows at the arena's main entrance broken.
