Band 'to compensate' crush families

Police say 10,000 fans may have been in stadium built to hold only 6,000.

    Investigators said they would question concert organizers over reports that more than 10,000 people were crammed into the open-air stadium, built to hold only 6,000.

    There are also reports that the building had only one unlocked exit.
     
    Sergeant Slamet, a local policeman, said the victims were "trampled to death" as the crowd turned "very rough and began pushing".
     
    Indonesia has witnessed similar deadly stampedes at concerts in recent years.
