Learning to be a Liverpool Fan, Part IV - The Hillsborough Tragedy
15. April 15, 1989 was a dark day for football fans the world over but especially for Liverpool when 96 Liverpool fans attending the FA Cup semi-finals at Nottingham Forest were killed and 766 injured during a crowd crush.
On April 13, 2015 before the start of the match with Newcastle, all in attendance at Anfield observed a minute of silence (see video).
For more details of the disaster, see the Wikipedia article and at the Liverpool web site.
The incident is under a new investigation initiated in 2014 after many years of charges that earlier investigations were inadequate.
