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.

Baghdad - Unidentified gunmen shot dead five members of a family in an Iraqi town, an interior ministry source said Sunday.

Gunmen broke into the house of a bodyguard of the mayor of Tarmiyah town, some 30 km north of Baghdad and shot him dead along with his wife, sister and two daughters. The incident occurred after midnight, Xinhua quoted the source as saying requesting anonymity.

The gunmen then planted bombs in the house and blew it up before fleeing, the source added.
