ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – At least 20 persons were hurt when a portion of the Gallera de Ayala here gave way during a derby on Saturday night.

Senior Superintendent Jose Chiquito Malayo, the city police chief, said 19 were slightly hurt while another suffered a fractured bone in the left leg.

Malayo said a portion of the left wing of the wooden arena collapsed.

Lawyer Cesar Jimenez, owner of the Gallera de Ayala, said the 10-year old arena was renovated in April before it was leased out to a new management.

“It’s an accident and we allow the police to do the investigation,” Jimenez said.
