    Background: SUNDAY'S FRENZIED RIOTS AT A SOCCER MATCH IN LIMA, PERU.

    THEY WERE SET OFF WHEN A PAN TRIED TO ATTACK THE REFEREE AFTER A DISPUTED DECISION. THE EXCITED FANS WENT INTO ACTION, AND THE POLICE USED TEAR GAS TO DISPERSE THEM. THERE WERE 45-THOUSAND AT THE MATCH BETWEEN ARGENTINA AND PERU.

    WHEN THE TEAR GAS DROVE THE CROWDS BACK, MANY TRIED TO GET OUT OF THE STADIUM THROUGH THE EXITS. BUT THE DOORS WERE STILL LOCKED AS THE GAME HAD FIVE MINUTES TO GO. MANY WERE CRUSHED IN THE PRESSURE. THE CROWDS FINALLY BURST OPEN TWO GATES AND OTHERS WERE TRAMPLED AS THOUSANDS CHARGED OUT.

    THE FURIOUS MOB SET FIRE AUTOMOBILES AND BUSES ON THE STREETS AND LEFT OTHER DAMAGE IN ITS WAKE.

    OVER 300 DEAD WERE LAID OUT IN LONG ROWS IN MAKESHIFT MORGUES, MANY WITH NUMBER STRIPS OF TAPE ON THEIR HEADS AS THE JOB OF IDENTIFYING THE BODIES BEGAN. MANY WERE CHILDREN AND TEEN-AGERS. WEEPING RELATIVES CROWDED THE MORGUES IN SEARCH OF THEM. MORE THAN 100 WERE STILL UNIDENTIFIED YESTERDAY.

    THE PERUVIAN GOVERNMENT HAS OFFERED TO PAY ALL BURIAL EXPENSES AND PROCLAIMED SEVEN DAYS OF NATIONAL MOURNING. THERE WERE MORE DISORDERS ON MONDAY WHEN STUDENT GROUPS LAID THE BLAME ON THE POLICE FOR USING TEAR GAS.
