Fans caused a stoppage in Thursday's African Cup semifinal between Ghana and Equatorial Guinea.

Play was halted with Ghana leading 3-0 and less than 10 minutes remaining in the game after riot police were initially brought on after Ghana scored two goals in the first half.

Water bottles were thrown and police helicopters flew close to the field, causing debris from empty seats to float into the air.
