Thousands of Bangladeshi football fans went on the rampage after power cuts blacked out television coverage of an eagerly-awaited World Cup match in South Africa.

Angry supporters damaged scores of cars and buses in the capital Dhaka and vandalised electricity distribution centres across the country late Saturday after screens went blank for Argentina's 1-0 victory over Nigeria in Johannesburg.

"Fans were furious because they could not watch the Argentina vs Nigeria match due to power cuts. Thousands spilled (onto) the streets and (damaged) cars and buses," Dhaka police chief A.K.M Shahidul Haq told AFP.
