Saudi suicide bomber prank

Saudi social media users were outraged earlier this week by a prank in which an actor pretending to be a taxi driver makes unsuspecting passengers think that he has an explosive belt.

The video, which made the rounds on YouTube before being shut down at the behest of the Saudi government, shows the “driver” preach the merits of “jihad” to young passengers who are frightened to death at the sight of a suicide belt.

One of the passengers, a young boy, breaks down in tears after realizing that the driver had pulled a gag.

Another passenger threw himself out of the moving vehicle convinced that he was about to die at the hands of a suicide bomber.

Suicide bombing has been a favorite tactic of Islamist groups throughout the Middle East. Saudi Arabia has also been hit by terrorists wearing explosive belts, particularly from al-Qaida.
