Algerian league top scorer killed by stone throw

ALGIERS, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- Cameroonian soccer player Albert Ebosse died on Saturday at age 24 after being hit by a stone during the game of his hosting side JS Kabylie against USM Algiers in the Algeria's Professional League One, local media reported.

The visitors won the derby game 2-1 in November 1st Stadium in Tizi Ouzou province.

Mokhtar Benmoussa opened the scoring for USM Algiers at the eighth minute, but Ebosse equalized with a penalty shot at the 28th. In fact, it was the sole goal for his side, and the last in his life. The new signing Youcef Belaili scored the winning goal for USM Algiers seven minutes before the end of the game.

The fans of the locals were irritated at the end of the game and started stoning the pitch from the stands.

The Cameroonian striker was hit on the head and sent to hospital where he died from injuries.

The police has opened an investigation to determine the circumstances of this tragic incident and arrest the people standing behind it.

Ebosse was crowned the best scorer last year in the Algerian league with a total of 17 goals in 31 appearances.

He joined JSK last season from the Malaysian Perak Football Association.
