Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

London -  At least three people were killed and 15 others injured after dozens of gunmen attacked a jail in southern Philippines to free a prisoner, police said Monday.

The incident occurred when at least 50 gunmen stormed a jail in Kidapawan city in North Cotabato province late Sunday night, the BBC reported.

According to the police, the attackers were from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and trying to free a leader.

The rebel group, however, denied such a claim.

The attack was launched at 10.00 p.m. Sunday when gunmen fired a series of grenades at the jail's main gate. At least 15 civilians were injured in the attack.
