Video: Asian Cup: Iraq win against S.Korea

The fairy tale run of the Iraqi team continued as they overcame S.Korea in the semifinals in a penalty shootout. The S.Koreans looked like they had lost their legs and their penalty taking was woeful. But I think this is destiny. Iraq was meant to win. They now meet Saudi Arabia who beat Japan, 3-2. There was jubilation and wild celebrations in Iraq following the win. But 11 people died and 30 were wounded as a bomb went off in Mansour, in a grim reminder that violence is never to far away from Iraqis daily life.
