At least 12 people died and about 240 were injured in Algeria on Tuesday night as crowds rejoiced Algeria’s 1:0 win in a 2014 soccer World Cup qualifier with Burkina Faso.

In cities, people poured out into the streets to celebrate despite heavy rain, while others drove around in cars, blowing their horns.

Five people were killed when a car skidded off the road into a ravine in the city of Bejaia. A traffic accident in Biskra left four people dead.
