The violence erupted late Saturday when the blackouts hit Dhaka’s southern Saidabad district just before the match between Argentina and Nigeria, said police official Mohammad Moniruzzaman.

Impoverished Bangladesh suffers from frequent power outages, but authorities say they are trying to reduce blackouts, especially during World Cup matches.
