‘Football is un-Islamic’: ISIS militants gun down Real Madrid fans in Iraq

Three Islamic State gunmen burst into a café attended by members of a local Real Madrid football fan club in central Iraq, before going on a rampage through the Shiite city of Balad, 80km north of capital Baghdad.

“A group of Islamic terrorists, from ISIS [Islamic State/IS], came into the café, armed with AK-47s, shooting at random at everyone who was inside,” Ziad Subhan, who heads the local fan organization, told Spanish website AS.
