Iraq's chief Olympic bicycling coach was shot dead after gunmen kidnapped him from his home on the outskirts of Baghdad, the latest in a string of attacks on sports figures, officials said. Family members identified the body of 48-year-old Mahoud Ahmed Fulayih at the central morgue in the capital on Monday, two days after he was abducted, said Hussein al-Amidi, the acting secretary general of the Olympic committee. He said Fulayih was kidnapped three days after he returned with the bicycling team from the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar. "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."
