400 people were left injured when a stampede was triggered by a bomb scare in the Italian city Turin’s Piazza San Carlo. According to Football Italia, at least two of these injuries are serious but there have been no reported deaths yet.

Crowds of around 20,000 Juventus fans had gathered in what was the designated viewing area to watch the recently concluded final of the UEFA Champions League between Juventus, a club based in Turin, and Spanish club Real Madrid. Real won the match 4-1 and just after they scored their third goal, an explosion sparked a panic at the  Piazza San Carlo. AP reports say that the entire piazza went in the direction next to the screen to escape. It was initially reported in Italian media that 30-40 people were injured but that number has risen rapidly to 200 and now 400.
