ISIS gunmen shot dead at least 14 Real Madrid fans at a supporters club in Iraq – because they ‘don’t like football’.
Three terrorists stormed the café hosting the meeting around midnight and opened fire at the fans who had gathered to watch old recordings of the Spanish football club.
Armed with AK-47s, they left bodies strewn across floor in the northern Shi’ite Muslim town of Balad.
Gruesome pictures from the scene show the floor covered in broken glass and soaked in blood under posters of Real Madrid players and coach Zinedine Zidane.
President of the Madrid supporters club, Ziad Subhan, said: ‘A group of Islamic terrorists, from ISIS, came into the café, armed with AK-47s, shooting at random at everyone who was inside’.
When asked about the motive for the attack, the president replied: ‘They don’t like football, they think it’s anti-Muslim. They just carry out attacks like this. This is a terrible tragedy’.
