Ecuador: Senseless Death at Football Match

An 11-year-old boy, Carlos Cedeño, died at a football match between Barcelona and Emelec was caused by a stray firework that may have been the result of feuding supporter sides. Ecuadoran bloggers Cronicacero [ES] and Un Guayaco En Nueva York [ES] both express outrage at this tragedy.

  • It´s a shame that this cathastrophe had to happen for our authorities to decide the punishment in this situation, that little kid only went to see his favorite team, and now he is dead . . the responsibles should be captured soon. We as Emelec fans feel so sad about this desease.
