PHOTOS FROM AFCON 2015: Violence by host side's fans as Ghana advances to Finals

Ghana fans had to seek refuge from missiles that were being thrown at them by the host side's fans.

Bottles rained down as security personnel battled to gain control, while a helicopter hovered over the stadium.

Ghana took a 2-0 lead into half-time, having opened the scoring when Jordan Ayew scored a penalty after Kwesi Appiah had been fouled by keeper Ovono.

The Black Stars will now go on to play Ivory Coast in Sunday's final.
