Iraq's Olympic Cycling Coach Slain

Associated Press is reporting that Iraq's Olympic cycling coach was killed after gunmen kidnapped him from his home in the latest attack on one of the country's sports figures.

48-year-old Mahoud Ahmed Fulayih body was recovered two days after he was kidnapped, according to the AP report. Fulayih was kidnapped three days after he returned with the cycling team from the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar.

The AP report quoted Hussein al-Amidi, acting secretary general of Iraq's National Olympic Committee, "We lost another one. He is not a politician and has no link with any party," al-Amidi said. "It looks like no one is excluded from the violence."
