Heartbreaking! ISIS Militants Slaughter 14 Real Madrid Fans in Iraq (Photos)

Scene of the fatal attack
Islamic extremists attached to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria have killed 14 football lovers in the middle-east. ISIS have slaughtered at least 14 Real Madrid fans at a supporters club in northern Iraq according to Dailymail.

Three gunmen opened fire with machine guns around midnight at the cafe in the predominately Shi'ite Muslim town of Balad.

President of the Madrid supporters club, Ziad Subhan, said: 'A group of Islamic terrorists, from ISIS, came into the cafĂ©, armed with AK-47s, shooting at random at everyone who was inside'.
When asked about the motive for the attack, the president said: 'They don't like football, they think it's anti-Muslim. They just carry out attacks like this. This is a terrible tragedy'. 
The assailants fled and hours later one of them set off hisexplosive vest at a nearby vegetable market after police and Shi'ite militia members cornered him in a disused building andexchanged gunfire, security sources said.

A Reuters witness saw the scorched body of a suspected assailant hanging upside down from a post outside the cafe on Friday morning. Residents said they had seized the man from a nearby housewhere he had fled following the attack. They said they had burned him alive after he confessed.

An intelligence official confirmed this account. Islamic State nearly overran Balad, 80 km (50 miles) northof Baghdad, in 2014 and maintains a frontline around 40 km away.

Friday's attackers had passed three police checkpointsbefore reaching their target, said police sources who declinedto be identified as they were not authorised to speak to the media.

Security forces deployed throughout the town, fearing more attacks. The intelligence official said fighters from the powerful Iranian-backed Badr Organisation raided a nearby house anddetained 13 members of a Sunni family.
There were reports of gunfire in an adjacent orchard.
