A Barcelona supporter in Madain a city a few miles south of Baghdad, allegedly “slaughtered” his Madrid-supporting 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,” an Iraqi Interior Ministry source said.
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.”
