Fan dies during match between Kakoma FC and Chicago FC in Malawi - police

BLANTYRE, Malawi -- Police say a football fan died after he was hit by a rock thrown by rival supporters at a game in Malawi.

Police spokesman George Mulewa identified the fan as 25-year-old Boaz Mwesumo. Mulewa says an autopsy found that Mwesumo died of head injuries sustained in the violence Wednesday at a cup game between two third-tier teams, Kakoma FC and Chicago FC, in northern Malawi.

Mulewa says Chicago fans became "overexcited'' when their team took a 2-0 lead. The rival supporters started fighting and Mwesumo was hit by a rock thrown from the Chicago supporters section. Police are investigating.

The death comes three months after eight people died in a stampede at a game in the Malawian capital Lilongwe marking the country's independence from Britain.

There is an increase in football-related violence in the southern African country with poor crowd control.
