criminal law



BBC News reports that an Iraqi football player has been shot dead by a spectator as he was about to score an equalising goal. According to police, the shooting apparently happened in the last minute of a game between two local rivals (Sinjar and Buhayra) in the city of Hilla on Sunday. Police have arrested the gunman. At least it puts this Man Utd-Liverpool ‘hatred’ into perspective.
