Iraqi Barcelona Fan Kills, Beheads Friend who Supports Madrid

According to a report in Baghdad newspaper Al Zaman, passion between rival fans spilled over into violence and murder this week.
On Monday, a Barcelona supporter in Madain — a city a few miles south of Baghdad — supposedly argued with a Real Madrid-supporting friend in a gaming arcade. The Barca fan then reportedly “slaughtered” his friend with a knife, in full view of several witnesses.
“A fight broke out on Monday night at the Games Hall in Aldjaarh, between two friends, one of whom supported Barcelona and the other who supported Real Madrid.”
The source added that events took a dramatic turn when the Barcelona fan took out a knife and stabbed his friend several times, before “beheading him in public.”
“Witnesses at the Hall captured the offender and called the police, who rushed to the scene and took him to a security centre for interrogation. The dead body was taken to the forensic medical department for a post-mortem.”
According to Al Zaman, this isn’t the first trouble between Iraqi Barcelona and Madrid fans. Last April (presumably on the day of Los Blancos’ 2-1 victory at the Nou Camp) a violent knife fight between rivals fans broke out at a coffee shop in Karbala, with several people injured.
Thankfully, Nigerian football fanatics have not graduated to this-YET.
