Real Madrid players pay tribute to Iraq fan club members killed by ISIS
A Real Madrid supporters club was attacked Friday, killing 16 people, in a town more than 100 kilometers north of Baghdad.
After members of ISIS killed Real Madrid fans in Iraq at a supporters club, the team honored the victims on Saturday in the team's match with Deportivo.
It was on Friday when ISIS militants entered a get-together of Real Madrid fans in the town of Balad, killing 16 and injuring more than 30, per AS, using guns and suicide bombers. The supporters club, consisting of 50 fans, had met for coffee and to watch old Real games. Per the AP, ISIS did not state that it specifically targeted soccer fans, while other places such as The Daily Mail have quoted the person who is supposed to be the president of the supporters club saying they were targeted because ISIS thinks soccer is "anti-Muslim."
Real Madrid did what it could to honor the victims, giving them a moment of silence before the match.
The team also wore black armbands in tribute of those who were injured.
