Horror mortar attack on Iraqi league champs

Four members of Iraqi league championship winners Al Zawra'a have been injured, three of them seriously, in a mortar attack on the club's stadium on Sunday.

Reports from inside Iraq claim the attack took place during the first team's training session, injuring Dargham Abbas, Ammar Abdulzahra, Ali Rida and Wissam Kazem.

All four were rushed to nearby Al Karakh hospital, with three of the quartet believed to be in a serious condition.

Al Zawra'a are due to represent Iraq in next year's Asian Champions League and on Friday were drawn to face Qatar's Al Rayyan, Al Arabi of Kuwait and Al Wahda from the United Arab Emirates when the tournament kicks off in March.
